Film Stars don’t die in Liverpool is a romantic drama based on the memoir of Peter Turner. Turner was an aspiring actor in 1979 when he met and fell in love with the 1952 Oscar winning Gloria Grahame. With a 28 year age gap and separated by the Atlantic, the relationship was a challenge. When Gloria returns to London for a stage production later in her career and becomes ill, even more challenges arise for Peter Turner.

Annette Bening is excellent playing the real-life Hollywood actress, and Jamie Bell, (as Turner) has developed since playing the lead in “Billy Elliot”. Julie Walters is the stereotypical Liverpool supportive mum whilst Vanessa Redgrave makes a short appearance as Gloria’s mother, and the real Peter Turner has a small role. This is an appealing film.
