Knightley working on film with mother

Called “The Best Time of Our Lives”

Keira Knightley will star in a film written by her mother.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” fox will headline “The Best Time of Our Lives”, based on a screenplay written by her mother, the playwright Sharman Macdonald.

The film – which will be directed by Knightley’s “the Jacket” director John Maybury – is something Knightley has been attached to for several years now. It goes before cameras the week after Easter, 2007.

According to Production Weekly, the film is based on the true story of the complex relationship between Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, his wife, Caitlin, his childhood friend Vera Phillips (Knightley) and her eventual husband, William Killick.
