Over 30 years ago, Peter Turner published a memoir on his relationship with screen icon, Gloria Grahame, titled "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool". Unlike most celebrity tales, this was not one rife with scandal or despair. This was a story about love, regret, and kinship. Over 30 years later, Peter's story has finally arrived on the silver screen.
Annette Bening stars as Gloria Grahame, an aging acting icon who learns she is ailing. Rather than suffering alone, she calls on her former love, Peter (Jamie Bell), and requests to stay with him and his family. After taking her in, Peter begins to reflect upon the love they had before, pondering where it all went wrong. And more importantly, where do Gloria and Peter go from here?
For this exclusive interview, Aaron sits down with the director of "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool", Paul McGuigan. He discusses a myriad of topics including why this story felt like one he needed to tell, working with Annette Bening and Jamie Bell, and what it was like having the inspiration for the story readily available. Also, Aaron talks with Peter Turner himself, to get behind the movie magic and discover the love behind the story, and what it is like seeing your own life on the screen.
Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool releases on 12/29 in LA and NY, and the film itself is a beautiful celebration of life and love. And to compliment this tale, enjoy these two interviews with the wonderfully engaging talents of Paul McGuigan and Peter Turner.
