Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (15)

Biography, Drama, Romance

A romance sparks between a young actor and a Hollywood leading lady.

The critical consensus

It’s a classy weepy with some killer dialogue, but Bening is the big sell here. Given one of the juiciest roles of her career, she makes every moment count.

****(*)Olly Richards, Empire Online, 13/11/2017

A defiantly unsentimental yet heartfelt portrait.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 15/11/2017

Fascinating and frustrating.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 15/11/2017

Film stars might not die in Liverpool, but they sure spend a long time dying there.

**(*)(*)(*)Phil Concannon, Little White Lies, 16/11/2017

Directed with imagination and sensitivity by Paul McGuigan, Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool is a real heartbreaker filled with laughter, tears and all the authentic rollercoaster emotions of a great and tragic love story.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 17/11/2017

An overwrought score pushes the film into the territory of melodrama, but mostly it works, with tender performances from the two leads.
