    I only recently heard about Gloria Grahame so looking forward to it, Annette Bening getting a lot of praise and award buzz

    Check out The Big Heat, In A Lonely Place and The Bad And The Beautiful (which she won a Oscar for, they show her speech at the end of the film) also she's in It's A Wonderful Life. Her life story is definitely very interesting, and the treatment of her by the studios was sad basically blackballing her after a great first 8 years or so. Her love life was a soap opera.

    Loved the Film, Annette Benning as per usual is fantastic (when isn't she) and will more then likely get a Oscar nod, Jamie Bell was great too. Also Stephen Graham gets the nod for most OTT in Cinema history, also great to see Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave in small roles. Definitely Paul Mcguigan's best film since his awesome debut Gangster No.1.

    I saw it.
    The leads, Annette Bening, particularly, and Jamie Bell were very good. In fact all performances including Kenneth Cranham, Julie Walters, and Vanessa Redgrave were all top notch.
    The story was straight forward enough and handled the older woman, toy boy relationship quite well. This could have slipped into schmaltz but didn't and was surprisingly emotional. The longer it went on the more Bening looked like Gloria Grahame! It was funny, charming, and heart warming.

    A lovely and very touching movie. I've seen it 3 or 4 times.

    Annette Bening is so good in everything.
