Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool
Wed 13 Dec - Sun 17 Dec 2017
Oscar nominee Annette Bening and Jamie Bell star in this romantic drama, an adaptation of the memoir by British actor Peter Turner, recounting his romance with the legendary (and legendarily eccentric) Hollywood star Gloria Grahame during the last years of her life.
Grahame lived a provocative off-screen life and found herself alone and with numerous kids to support when her movie work dried up. The film takes place after she relocated to the North of England and developed a relationship with the much younger Turner. Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave also star.
