I've been following Annette Bening for many years dating back to 1990. I always though her as a talent actress who been unrecognized by her peers.She could have gotten a Oscar nomination for her role, but few people voted for her. In "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool." she gave an amazing performance as Gloria Grahame whom she won her Oscar in the 1952 movie, "the Bad and the Beautiful." The film focus on the actress in the last three years of her life and she falls for a younger man name Peter Turner played by Jamie Bell and trying to revive her career, while fighting breast cancer which she refused treatment. I noticed in her bio, that she appear in a few movies right up to her death in 1981. Her career was destroyed when she married her 13 year-old stepson and had to fled to England. Up until that movie, I know very little of Gloria Grahame, but when I left the theater, I know more about the life of the actress. This movie is recommended for those who are into film history and wanted to learn about her life. The film is based on the memoir by Turner which came out in 1986.If you want more of the actress, this is the book you want to get. So this movie didn't get an Oscar nomination for anything, especially for Annette Bening who rich fully deserve that nomination. See the movie anyway.
