Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Jamie Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Annette 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. We follow them from England to Los Angeles, from stage to hospital, and from laughter to tears in a showbiz love story rarely seen onscreen.

‘Director Paul McGuigan finds the balance between pathos and humour, working from Matt Greenhalgh’s adaptation of a memoir by the actor and writer Peter Turner…It’s a beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers.’

Venue: Studio 74, Exeter Phoenix
