Duration
106 minutes

Directed by Paul McGuigan
Starring Jamie Bell, Annette Bening, Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave, Stephen Graham

In 1981, aged 57, Gloria Grahame is eking out the last of her celebrity on the stage. When she collapses before a performance one night she calls former lover Peter Turner, a twentysomething actor in Liverpool, and asks if she can come to recuperate at his family home.

The timeline then splits between scenes of Grahame elegantly dying under the care of Peter’s indomitable mother (Julie Walters), and flashbacks to Grahame and Turner’s brief but passionate romance.

A love story told with tremendous warmth and tenderness that you won’t want to miss this year!

4 stars - "Annette Bening lights up the screen, but Jamie Bell is a sweet, vulnerable marvel" - The Telegraph
