Description

FILM STARS DON'T DIE IN LIVERPOOL + Q&A with film historian Peter Evans

Directed by Paul McGuigan. UK 2017, 103 mins (15)

Members' Choice Film

NB film starts promptly at 8.30pm

Touching biopic of Oscar-winning Gloria Grahame (Bening) and her relationship with Peter Turner (Bell), a struggling actor 28 years her junior. The couple meet as Grahame’s final days are played out in Liverpool. Director McGuigan brings a finely tuned balance of warmth, sadness and humour to the ill-matched relationship. A career-best performance from Jamie Bell which brings out a tenderness not often seen in his filmography, meanwhile Bening pitches it just right, demanding and vulnerable, romantic and tough. The film based on Turner’s book about the relationship pays fitting tribute to a great star of the 40s and 50s.
Post-screening Q&A with film historian Peter Evans giving insight into the context of Grahame’s career.
‘A beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
