Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool
Real life proves just as dramatic off-screen as it does on it for these two actors, the ageing Hollywood superstar Gloria Grahame and her younger lover, Peter Turner. As their mismatched romance waxes and wanes over time, events conspire to keep them in each other’s lives even when it proves difficult and demanding. Ultimately, they find that they must each come to terms with whatever fate they face in the future whether they are together or apart.
Directed by Paul McGuigan and starring Jamie Bell, Stephen Graham, Annette Bening, Vanessa Redgrave and Julie Walters.
