A feel-good character-driven comedy starring Golden Globe-winner Dame Joan Collins, BAFTA-winner Pauline Collins, and Italian heartthrob Franco Nero.
A dramedy that had me in fits of unstoppable giggles.
Kate Muir, Times UK
The Collinses make an engaging double act and the strength of their performances goes a long way towards papering over some of the script’s shortcomings.
Matthew Turner, The List
Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover’s funeral on the glamorous French hideaway of Îe-de-Ré, former Hollywood siren Helen (Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a dwindling marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road in a race to get to Île-de-Ré, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a reclusive Italian millionaire (Nero) along the way. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another – and have the time of their lives.
