When life gives you the fuzzy end of the lollipop and love is golden, dazzling and star-cross’d – what better place is there to be than Liverpool 1979? What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale (Annette Benning) and her young lover (Jamie Bell) quickly grows into a deeper relationship. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control. Gloria Grahame was the Hollywood leading lady at the heart of several 1950s hit films including The Big Heat and Oklahoma! She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Bad and the Beautiful. With an all star cast including Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave and Frances Barber this is a compassionate, warm and beguiling stranger-than-fiction true romance.
