The Sedona International Film Festival is presenting the Northern Arizona premiere of “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” — starring Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave — showing March 23-28 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” is a true story about what happens when a Hollywood legend discovers romance.

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