We may have a contender for most interesting film title of 2017; I won’t even lie, I legitimately thought this was some kind of spoof noir film about a film star being murdered in Liverpool. Someone should write that though…
No, Films Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool is a much more intimate tale of Hollywood star Gloria Graham (Annette Bening) and her blossoming relationship with a young Scouse man (The criminally underrated Jamie Bell) with the likes of Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave in tow.
The trailer shows a bit more than maybe necessary, but given that it’s based on a true story, it’s not really fair to call it a spoiler. The film does look very sweet though; great cast, great premise, and an utterly charming trailer. No doubt this will be one of the year’s smaller treats.
Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool is out 17th November
