We’re delighted to open Bedford Film Festival 2018 with Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, not least of all because of its recent nominations for Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay at the BAFTAs but because it truly epitomises how wonderful British cinema can be.

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