Based on Peter Turner’s acclaimed memoir of the same name, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool follows the playful but passionate relationship between aspiring actor Turner (Jamie Bell, Jane Eyre, Billy Elliot) and eccentric Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening, 20th Century Women, American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right) in 1978 Liverpool. Grahame had starred in several 1950s hit films, including The Big Heat, Oklahoma! and The Bad and the Beautiful, but by the 1970s she was clinging to the remains of her fame acting in a British stage revival. What starts as a vibrant affair between the legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort and strength. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control. Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave co-star. The soundtrack features a host of hits from the period, along with new music, including a specially recorded track by Elvis Costello. Written by Matt Greenhalgh (Control, Nowhere Boy) and directed by Paul McGuigan (“Sherlock,” Lucky Number Slevin).
