Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Disney World.
During the early days of World War II, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler, or fight on against incredible odds.

A beginning simple love story with the level of complexity in the end
Dear readers, now I am going to show you why I gave 9 stars for Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) movie. Well, I am not a fan of sad movies, nor black and white movies at the 1950s-1970s, but I know Gloria Grahame and this movie is dedicated to her. This movie is showing us all aspects about Gloria Grahame; what were her problems, how she was facing it, where she ever felt a love in the last of her days, and with whom. This movie has some differences with the reality life of Gloria Grahame, because this movie is based on the book of Peter Turner, but at least the audience can see the struggles of love that Gloria had, to stand for it, to beg it, to embrace it, and to loose it. The character of Annie Benning is quite dramatic and stunning. She is so beautiful and was successful to be Gloria Grahame. Her counterpart also gives the best acting, as a young boy falling in love with the superstar from the era of his mother. Such a wow. This movie is sad from the beginning and makes me so mellow with an idea; that even a superstar, that assumed to have everything, can not have everything at all. Despite of watching this drama movie, this is not a boring movie, nor make us sleepy at the theater, because the setting was in Liverpool and New York in 1980s. The two big cities in that glorious time of young stars, linked up because of the love between two main actors; old lady and young actor. Then, this movie makes you up awake and guess how is the ending, dear ladies and gentleman, because Gloria Grahame is such an inspiring character for all movie stars and we do not want this movie has an ending.
