Fresh from its European premiere at the BFI London Film Festival, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool tells the story of ageing Hollywood star Gloria Grahame (Bening), a goddess of the silver screen in Hollywood’s Golden Age, who now resides in Liverpool and makes a living from intimate performances. Her life takes a sudden turn when she encounters Peter Turner (Bell), an irrepressibly charming young man. Passion soon transforms into something deeper when circumstances beyond their control profoundly affect their lives.
