Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool

"What an astounding actress Annette Bening is. And she's at her very best playing Gloria Grahame, a screen siren of the 1940s and 1950s, who faced a health crisis in her final days with the help of a new love (a terrific Jamie Bell)." - Rolling Stone

“Annette Bening is at her very best in Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool playing Gloria Grahame, a screen siren of the 1940s and 1950s. The film picks up with the actress during her last years, from 1979 to 1981, when she died of breast cancer at the age of 57. Bening brings Graham to thrilling life as the complicated woman she was till the end.

“Grahame made her mark playing bad girls in such film noir classics as The Big Heat and In a Lonely Place [playing the Original Feb 18 & 20]. Rattled by scandal, the four-times divorced mother of four fled to England. It was there, while performing on stage that Grahame met Peter Turner, a younger actor who saw her through her final days after the former starlet refused treatment for cancer. It's her relationship with Turner, played by the terrific Jamie Bell, that constitutes the core of the film, based on Turner's 1986 memoir about his time with the actress in Liverpool.

“Bening demonstrates again why she's one of the best actresses in the business, digging deep to find the woman behind the sex symbol and refusing to settle for the superficial.” - Rolling Stone
