Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool. Trailer. Annette Bening. Jamie Bell. Vanessa Redgrave. Julie Walters.

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.

20th Century Women. Trailer. Annette Bening. Elle Fanning. Greta Gerwig. Lucas Jade Zumann. Billy Crudup.

Mike Mills’s texturally and behaviorally rich new comedy seems to keep redefining itself as it goes along, creating a moving group portrait of particular people in a particular place [Santa Barbara] at a particular moment in the 20th century [1979], one lovingly attended detail at a time. The great Annette Bening, in one of her very best performances, is Dorothea, a single mother raising her teenage son, Jamie [Lucas Jade Zumann], in a sprawling bohemian house, which is shared by an itinerant carpenter [Billy Crudup] and a punk artist with a Bowie haircut [Greta Gerwig] and frequented by Jamie’s rebellious friend Julie [Elle Fanning]. 20th Century Women is warm, funny, and a work of passionate artistry. An A24 release.
