Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool
£7 concessions, £6.50 members
Length: 105 min
Director: Paul McGuigan
Cast: Jamie Bell, Annette Bening
Peter Turner met Hollywood legend Gloria Grahame at a London lodging in the late 1970s.
They fell in love and embarked on an intense if short-lived affair. Paul McGuigan’s touching film, based on Turner’s memoir, recalls that time and their subsequent encounter in Liverpool a few years later.
A beautiful and evocative drama, Annette Bening and Jamie Bell are superb as the seemingly mismatched pair.
“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.” – Olly Richards, Empire Magazine
