Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (15)
Annette Bening stars in this endearing retelling of the stranger-than-fiction, but true, love story between a struggling young actor and the Oscar-winning film star, Gloria Grahame.
They met in London, where, looking for stage work at the end of her career, she was staying in the same North London boarding house as him and they had a passionate romance.
Some time later he receives a phone call – she had collapsed in her dressing room while on tour and wanted to stay with Peter and his family in Liverpool to recuperate. Beguiling.
