Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

The melancholy romantic memoir from Peter Turner is brought to life by Brit director Paul McGuigan (The Acid House, Lucky Number Slevin). Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) stars as Turner, a twentysomething wannabe actor who crosses paths with faded, fiftysomething Hollywood starlet Gloria Grahame (played magnificently by Annette Bening) in late-'70s England. The film flashes back and forth between Grahame's ailing final days and her earlier May-December romance with Turner. The film is a simple romantic tragedy with few dramatic complications, but the lead actors share a palpable spark. FULL REVIEW: Wannabe actor meets faded star in romantic memoir by Devin D. O’Leary (2/8/2018). 105 minutes R. (Opens Friday 2/9)
