Real life proves just as dramatic off-screen as it does on it for these two actors, the aging Hollywood superstar Gloria Grahame and her younger lover, Peter Turner. As their mismatched romance waxes and wanes over time, events conspire to keep them in each other's lives even when it proves difficult and demanding. Ultimately, they find that they must each come to terms with whatever fate they face in the future whether they are together or apart. Written by AnonymousB

It's quite unrealistic..
17 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

A romance sparks between a young actor and a Hollywood leading lady. Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is unrealistic, boring and quite hallow within, the 2 leads have no chemistry between them and their relationship feels forced instead of realistic or natural, it drags alot on certain areas and most of all it's not interesting as a whole and it wasn't something that needed to be said in the first place. (0/10)
