Devizes Film Club at The Palace presents:
FILM STARS DON'T DIE IN LIVERPOOL - UK 2017 - Cert 15
Director: Paul McGuigan
Starring: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Julie Walters
In the late 1970s the then well-known Academy Award winning actress, Gloria Grahame, had a brief but passionate affair with an unknown, struggling actor, Peter Turner, nearly 30 years her junior. But in 1981, aged 57, she collapsed in her London dressing room before a performance and subsequently asked Turner to take her to his family home in Liverpool, to recuperate. The film then splits between scenes where Grahame is elegantly dying under the care of Turner’s mother, and flashbacks to their short romance when they zipped between LA, New York and Liverpool as they clutched onto their honeymoon period. It’s a beguiling story of humanity and compassion.
