Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner and the eccentric Academy Award winning actress Gloria Grahame in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control.
Starring 4 x Oscar nominee Annett Bening, BAFTA winner Jamie Bell, 2 x Oscar nominee Julie Walters, and Oscar winner Venessa Redgrave!
“It’s a classy weepy with some killer dialogue, but Bening is the big sell here. Given one of the juiciest roles of her career, she makes every moment count.” (Empire)
