About the Movie

Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award® - winning actress Gloria Grahame (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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: What an astounding actress Annette Bening is. And she's at her very best playing Gloria Grahame, a screen siren of the 1940s and 1950s, who faced a health crisis in her final days with the help of a new love (a terrific Jamie Bell). – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Dec 29, 2017

Rotten: Film Stars is no portrait of Grahame; it's a pair of points that barely form a line. No shot in the film dares attempt to communicate more than one idea or emotion at a time. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Dec 29, 2017

Fresh: The central pairing lends it a touching intensity ... – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Jan 8, 2018

Fresh: If the movie meanders, it's refreshing to see a May-September romance in which May is played by the man for once and where the sex is happy, frank, and frequent. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Feb 1, 2018
