Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool

Certificate: 15
Director:  Paul McGuigan
Cast:  Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Kenneth Cranham
Release:  2017
Runtime:  1h 45m


The Oscar-winning Hollywood star Gloria Grahame really did go to Liverpool at a desperate stage in her life;  truth is stranger than fiction. Annette Bening as Gloria Grahame and Jamie Bell (all grown up since Billy Elliott) as the struggling young actor Peter bring this warm and heart-breaking story to life. Julie Walters and Kenneth Cranham are Peter’s down-to-earth Liverpudlian parents, astonished, sceptical, coping.




‘The movie makes the right decision to focus on the humanity and compassion. It's a beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers.’

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
