Written by Matt Greenhalgh

Starring Annette Bening and Jamie Bell

Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award (R)-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Bening) in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control.

"Bening finds the shattered beauty in Grahame, the tragedy of an ex-star hanging on for dear life to her waning looks and fame that has long since passed her by."--Adam Graham, Detroit News

"Bening is outstanding as a woman who fears that her fame and beauty are slipping away, and Bell ("Billy Elliot") brings to his character a heartbreaking vulnerability."--Calvin Wilson, St.Louis Post-Dispatch
