ODEON says...
‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool’ follows the tumultuous relationship between Peter Turner, a young British actor, and Gloria Grahame, an eccentric, Academy Award-winning actress many years older than him. 

She was a legendary femme fatale, and he was her young, inexperienced lover. What started out as a passionate affair eventually became something deeper, and they remained firm friends long after their romantic relationship was over. 

Annette Bening and Jamie Bell star in ‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool’, a touching true story based on Peter Turner’s own memoir.

Stunning film

Reviewer: Saint2Date: 2018-02-20

Lovingly crated film with excellent performances from the performers. Relationship very believable but ultimatly tragic (shaksperian), and an emotional experience. Based on his autobyography, so 'he' comes out very well, showing true love.

Beautifully acted, beautifully produced- a real little gem of a film from start to finish
