The Time of Their Lives is written and directed by Oscar nominee Roger Goldby, which is only his second venture writing a full feature film – the first being 2007’s The Waiting Room – Goldby’s extensive list as a director includes TV shows such as Inspector George Gently, Call the Midwife and Hustle, so he has a decent eye for a successful TV Show but will this work on the big screen?
The Time of Their Lives hits cinemas March 10th.
