Photo Coverage: Annette Bening & Warren Beatty Attend TIFF Premiere of FILM STARS DON'T DIE IN LIVERPOOL

Annette Bening and Warren Beatty attended the premiere of the new film FILM STARS DON'T DIE IN LIVERPOOL at this week's Toronto Film Festival. Check out photos below! Annette Bening and Jamie Bell star in this adaptation of the memoir by British actor Peter Turner, recounting his romance with the legendary (and legendarily eccentric) Hollywood star Gloria Grahame during the last years of her life.

The sultry Gloria Grahame won a best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in 1952's The Bad and the Beautiful. She appeared in films alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Lana Turner, Kirk Douglas, and a bevy of other icons. Her star blazed brightly then faded quickly, but she did not disappear. How Grahame spent her later years is the subject of this beautiful - and rare - ode to LIFE AFTER fame.

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool features as fine a performance as you will see this year: Annette Bening's portrayal of Grahame. She is paired brilliantly with Jamie Bell, who breathes pure empathy into his role as Gloria's lover Peter Turner, a working-class English actor. Drawing on Turner's memoir of the same name, director Paul McGuigan fashions a moving narrative that embraces the high and lows of the erstwhile Hollywood star's time spent living in Liverpool in the 1970s. Gloria is in her fifties, but her vitality and eccentricity leave Peter, who is decades younger, enraptured by this outrageous new force in his life.

As the two embark on their romance, we follow them from England to Los Angeles, from stage to hospital, and from laughter to tears. Unorthodox and sincere, Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is the kind of showbiz love story seldom depicted onscreen.
