Spring International Film Festival
Thursday, March 14, 2019, 07:00pm

The Spring International Film Festival begins at the Springfield Free Public Library on Thursday, March 14th. The library will screen Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool (2017) at 1:00 and 7:00 p.m.

Real life proves just as dramatic off screen as it does on it for two actors, the aging Hollywood superstar Gloria Grahame and her younger lover, Peter Turner. As their mismatched romance waxes and wanes over time, events conspire to keep them in each other’s lives even when it proves difficult and demanding. Directed by Pail McGuigan. Starring Jamie Bell, Annette Bening, Vanessa Redgrave and Julie Walters. 106 minutes. Rated R.Future films in this series include Bye Bye Germany (2017) on April 18 and Back to Burgundy (2017) on May 16.

Funding for the film program has been made possible by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs. Additional funding is also provided by the Friends of the Springfield Free Public Library.
