Win a double pass to The Time of Their Livesby The Listener
Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover's funeral on the glamorous French hideaway of Ile de Re, former Hollywood siren Helen (Joan Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a loveless marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road in a race to get to Ile de Re, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a Italian millionaire artist (Franco Nero) along the way. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another - and have the time of their lives.
