Using Peter Turner’s memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Bening) 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.

‘Landing lightly on the loneliness of fame and the ravages of aging, “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” is a fond farewell to a distinctive talent’. .. New York Times.

Starring Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Vanessa Redgrave and Julie Walters
