Island of Dreams

image

Real-life Shirley Valentines who swapped careers, homes, families and fiancés for Mediterranean machismo and mothers-in-law tell all to the makers of Coast Of Dreams. Dia flew home after two weeks on Zakynthos convinced that ‘a nice arse and a decent vegetarian moussaka’ were not the best basis for a relationship – but was lured back after a desperate call from Nico. Now pregnant and living with the in-laws, Dia’s island dream is tested to its limits. Meanwhile Suzy, who abandoned all in 1982 and admits ‘mother-in-law comes first and the wife third or fourth, after hunting or a dog,’ tells a cautionary tale as romance flounders.
