'Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool' was nominated for 3 BAFTAs including Best Adapted Screenplay.
Peter Turner met Hollywood legend Gloria Grahame at a London lodging in the late 1970s.
They fell in love and embarked on an intense if short-lived affair. Paul McGuigan's touching film, based on Turner’s memoir, recalls that time and their subsequent encounter in Liverpool a few years later.
It's a beautiful and evocative drama, with Annette Bening and Jamie Bell superb as the seemingly mismatched pair.
★★★★ "Bening is in her element" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
★★★★ "A classy weepy with some killer dialogue" - Olly Richards, Empire
★★★★ "A beguiling story" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
