“First rate performances from the two leads, and a fine supporting cast, confirms this as an awards season contender.” Wendy Ide, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
“It’s a beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers.” – Peter Bradshaw, GUARDIAN
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 virant 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.
