"I thought it was a really lovely film. Really well made, really well played and it completely won me over."
-Mark Kermode, BBC5 Live

"It’s a beguiling story and Bell and Bening are tremendous as the star-crossed lovers."
-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"It’s a classy weepy with some killer dialogue, but Bening is the big sell here. Given one of the juiciest roles of her career, she makes every moment count."
-Olly Richards, Empire

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