Annette Bening And Jamie Bell Are Strange Bedfellows In “Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool”

Plus: Find out what's coming to Netflix in January.

In Theaters

  • Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, director Paul McGuigan tracks the unusual but passionate relationship between Turner (Jamie Bell) and real-life Oscar winner Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening) in 1978 Liverpool. (December 29, Sony Pictures Classics)

  • Daniel Day-Lewis delivers his (alleged) final screen performance as Reynolds Woodcock, a womanizing couturier in 1955 London who becomes obsessed with—and challenged by—his young muse and model. A lushly mounted chamber drama that reteams Day-Lewis with There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson, Thread is a well-stitched coda to an illustrious acting career. (Wide release December 29, Focus Features)
