Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool is an unexpected great film. Based on the novel of the same name by Peter Turner, it tells the story of real life film star Gloria Graham.
Jamie Bell stars as Peter Turner, and Annette Bening, giving one of the best performances of her career, stars as Gloria Graham.
Gloria Graham played Violet in the film, It’s a Wonderful Life. She also won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the film, The Bad and the Beautiful.
It’s a bittersweet story. But also romantic, fun, and stirring.
Both actors have been nominated for the BAFTA awards. However, they are surprisingly missing from the Oscar nominations. If anyone has insight as to why that happened, please let me know.
It’s a noteworthy film with incredible performances.
