Annette Bening and Jamie Bell star in the real life tale of Hollywood sensation Gloria Grahame, who went from not being able to say no in Oklahoma and playing the wayward small-town floozy in It’s a Wonderful Life, to living in Liverpool with her much younger lover Peter Turner and his family.
Adapted from Turner’s own memoir, Paul McGuigan’s consummate study of a truly extraordinary relationship is filled with humour, passion and insight, effortlessly capturing the connection, both emotional and physical, between the pair. Flying dazzlingly in the face of the ‘fading star’ epithet, Bening eloquently portrays a woman who will not compromise her professional ambitions or her desire for personal happiness. And Bell, revelatory in the role, is more than a perfect match in this bracingly romantic and irresistibly sexy love story.
