Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool

In an extraordinary true-life story, Bening portrays American movie star Gloria Grahame, who meets and falls in love with a much younger actor (Jamie Bell) while performing in theatre in Liverpool. It is there that she is told that her breast cancer, which she successfully fought several years earlier, has returned.

But rather than seeking further treatment, Grahame decides to make Liverpool her home, determined to spend her last days in the city with her lover.

This witty and intensely moving romance features superb performances from its stars Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave.
