The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
A motley bunch of grey-mads abandon the austerity of the UK for the promise of Shangri-La in a luxurious hotel for retirees in India. The only trouble is not all is as advertised. In spite of the hardships, everybody in this sentimental farce finds themselves falling for the hotel and the country with old loves rekindled, new friendships formed and prejudices broken down. Superb performances from a sterling cast the movie is a joy to watch from beginning to end. Based on Deborah Moggach’s These Foolish Things , The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel carries a very important message that it is never too late. Well worth a view.
