In this extraordinary true-life story, Annette Bening plays ageing Hollywood star Gloria Grahame, who meets and falls in love with a much younger actor (Jamie Bell) while performing in Liverpool in the 1970’s. As the two embark on their romance, we follow them from England to Los Angeles, from stage to hospital, and from laughter to tears. Paul McGuigan’s endearing retelling based on the memoir by British actor Peter Turner, features an all star cast including Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave and Kenneth Cranham.
