Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero in The Time of Their Lives
The Time of Their
Lives is a charming, diverting and bitter-sweet road-trip movie about two
older women, Priscilla and Helen, an odd couple played by Pauline Collins and Joan
When timid Priscilla Pauline Collins) is a repressed
housewife married to selfish killjoy, Frank (Ronald Pickup) meets Helen (Joan
Collins), a broke, former Hollywood star living in a cheerless retirement home,
Priscilla finds herself reluctantly joining Helen on a jaunt to gate-crash a
funeral in France.
Using Priscilla cash and Helen’s other resources, they
embark on a trek to the ritzy Ile-de-Re, they stumble upon reclusive, famous
and wealthy Italian painter, Alberto (Franco Nero) and this love triangle does
not go the way any of them planned.
Their lives change as each challenges the other's worldview
and a new, more honest friendship is forged.
