Annette Bening and Jamie Bell star in this adaptation of British actor Peter Turner’s memoir, directed by Emmy-nominee Paul McGuigan.
“Drawing on [Peter] Turner’s memoir of the same name, director Paul McGuigan fashions a moving narrative that embraces the high and lows of the erstwhile Hollywood star’s time spent living in Liverpool in the 1970s. Gloria (Bening) is in her fifties, but her vitality and eccentricity leave Peter (Bell), who is decades younger, enraptured by this outrageous new force in his life.
As the two embark on their romance, we follow them from England to Los Angeles, from stage to hospital, and from laughter to tears.” (Toronto International Film Festival)
