Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool

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)
