About the film

A cast of beloved actors hits the big screen in Roger Goldby's feel-good comedy, the Time of Their Lives this spring. Starring Golden Globe-winner Dame Joan Collins, Oscar nominee Pauline Collins and Italian heartthrob Franco Nero, the film invites the viewer on a ferry and road trip like no other.

Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero

Former Hollywood siren Helen (Joan Collins) escapes her London retirement home to gate-crash her ex-lover's funeral on the glamorous French hideaway of Ile-de-Ré. En route she enlists the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a downtrodden English housewife stuck in a failing marriage.

Several scenes were filmed on board Brittany Ferries Mont St Michel service from Portsmouth to Caen as the couple head to France by sea. On arrival they drive south becoming entangled along the way in a love triangle with a reclusive Italian millionaire (Franco Nero).

On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another and perfect locations for an adventure.
