Based on the moving true-life story, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool chronicles the vibrant affair between legendary Oscar-winning Hollywood star Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening) and her young lover, aspiring young actor Peter Turner (Jamie Bell). Their romance quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Peter being the one person Gloria allows herself to turn to for comfort and strength. With stunning central performances, plus a superb supporting cast, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool is an endearing stranger-than-fiction love story. Specially commissioned programme notes will be available.

Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers

★★★★ The Guardian

A tremendously sensitive and complex portrayal of a forgotten star, which forgoes caricature in favour of a deeply personal story that is by turns sensitive, warm and melancholy.
