Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool

Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool features as fine a performance as you will see this year: Annette Bening’s (20th Century Women, The Kids Are Alright) portrayal of Grahame.

She is paired brilliantly with Jamie Bell (Nicholas Nicholby, Billy Elliot), who breathes pure empathy into his role as Gloria’s lover Peter Turner, a working-class English actor.

Drawing on Turner’s memoir of the same name, director Paul McGuigan fashions a moving narrative that embraces the high and lows of the erstwhile Hollywood star’s time spent living in Liverpool in the 1970s.

Gloria is in her fifties, but her vitality and eccentricity leave Peter, who is decades younger, enraptured by this outrageous new force in his life.
