Abstract
The ultimate coming-of-age movie With a combined age of almost 300, Hetty, Rose and Alison live in a home for the ‘active elderly’ and regularly share their impassioned concerns on everything from terrorism to global warming – not to mention the meaning of life, death and sex. But despite their unstoppable enthusiasm and disarming humour, all three women are not simply ready for death – they actively want to die. Surprising, poignant and at times very funny, The Time of Their Lives reveals the everyday mystery of how very old people experience life and the intense challenges that old age brings. Like first-hand witnesses reporting back from the edge of their own mortality, Hetty, Rose and Alison tell us things of which no-one ever speaks.
