Joan Collins and Pauline Collins give delightful performances in this uproarious comedy-drama, reminiscent of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which sees former Hollywood starlet Helen (Collins, Joan) become determined to escape her London retirement home to travel to (and gatecrash) her ex-lover’s funeral. She’s assisted in her runaway mission – for which she must travel to the glamorous French resort of ÎIe de Ré – by her friend Priscilla (Collins, Pauline), a housewife trapped in an unhappy marriage. En route, their friendship deepens as they cause havoc, enjoy new flirtations and encounters, and explore the difficulties of ageing in this very funny, very enjoyable film.
