Paul McGuigan’s enchanting retelling of the true-life romance between a battling young actor and Oscar-winner Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening).

Liverpool, 1981. About to take the stage in The Glass Menagerie, Grahame is suddenly struck down in pain. Shunning her pride, she calls upon her estranged lover Peter Turner (Jamie Bell) to stay at his family home nearby with his mum Bella (Julie Walters) and husband Joe (Kenneth Cranham) while she recuperates. As Jamie reflects on the memories of their once-vibrant love affair, he grapples not only with the emotions brought up by her struggle for survival, but also his duty to make contact with her family abroad, against Gloria’s wishes. Sticking closely to Turner’s 1986 memoir, McGuigan uses a series of flashbacks to stitch together a theatrical tale of lost romance, one sure to evoke memories of the old classics and to bring to the fore a filmic tenderness once a staple of Grahame’s now distant Hollywood era.

“First rate performances from the two leads, and a fine supporting cast, confirms this as an awards season contender.” (Screen International) (research Chris Coetsee) A published memoir destined for the silver screen, and so it is, but fabulous. Don’t miss. You’ll see Gloria, glorious in ‘Wonderful Life’ at Christmas.
