Compelling romance film based on a true story screening at the Kirkgate

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. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control.

“It's a beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers” - Guardian

"there is no denying the emotional force that this film develops, and for that, we can credit talented filmmakers and two stars working at the height of their powers" - Hollywood Reporter
