Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame finds romance and happiness with a younger man, but her life changes forever when she is diagnosed with breast cancer in the 1970s.
Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner and the eccentric Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control.
“Brittle and insecure, yet also steely and magnetic, Bening’s performance is full of nuance.” TIME OUT
