Based on a true story, Drama
1970s London: Peter Toole is a young actor sharing digs with an eccentric and beguiling older American actress. Learning she is the Oscar-winning actress Gloria Grahame, famous for Oklahoma! and other black-and-white hits, Peter and Gloria strike up a whirlwind romance. Fast-forward 20 years later and the couple are no longer together, with Peter back home in Liverpool living with his parents. Contacted by Gloria who has returned to England for a show, she asks if she can stay for a few days, only for Peter to discover she is terminally ill. While Peter’s star-struck parents welcome Gloria into their close-knit home, he must come to terms with her being back in his life. As she battles to keep her illness at bay and struggles with her fading stardom, the two reminisce on the unique and fleeting relationship they shared in this sad but warmhearted romantic drama.
