Annette Bening and Jamie Bell star in this adaptation of the memoir by British actor Peter Turner, recounting his romance with the legendary Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame during the last years of her life.

Gloria Grahame was the Oscar-winning star of The Big Heat, In a Lonely Place and The Bad and the Beautiful. Decades after she rose to fame appearing alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Lana Turner, Kirk Douglas and other icons of the silver screen, she is treading the boards in Lancaster in 1981 when she reaches out to her former lover, Liverpudlian actor Peter Turner (Bell).

There’s a great warmth and tenderness to this extraordinary true romance between a legendary femme fatale and her younger lover. Annette Bening’s standout portrayal is brilliantly matched by Jamie Bell and a great supporting cast of British talent.

Starring: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Julie Walters, Leanne Best, Kenneth Cranham, Stephen Graham, Vanessa Redgrave, Frances Barber
