Director: Paul McGuigan ● Starring: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave.
After the end of her Hollywood career, Oscar-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Bening) switched to the London stage and began a passionate affair with Peter Turner (Bell), a young Liverpudlian. The relationship eventually ended, but some years later after collapsing in a Lancaster hotel, Gloria contacted Peter again and asked him and his family to help her recover.
The two lead actors portray the romance with panache and humour, and the script and direction seamlessly switch back and forth in time.

With two screenings at 2.30pm* and 7.30pm.
