VOD REVIEW: Kelly Preston’s swan song goes Off The Rails

Our hearts collectively broke when Kelly Preston passed.

So it was with great anticipation that I waited for her final effort as the wonderful actress she is.

The film follows three women in their 50s who go on a European trip with the daughter of their deceased best friend. The deceased leaves rail tickets with the friends, with her request being the teenage daughter comes along.

BAFTA nominated director Jules Williamson spins a decent tale about female friendships and bonding, but there’s absolutely nothing new in this one.

Actresses Jenny Seagrove, Sally Phillips, Kelly Preston and Judi Dench, in a small role, are all fabulous, but the material is worn and tired.

It’s a road trip film that had every chance to be a fun little romp that just ends up being a disappointment.

Kelly Preston was a vibrant, wonderful actress, and she deserved better for her last film than this one.

2/5 Stars
