The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

[12a]

United Kingdom 2012, 124 mins
Director: John Madden
Starring: Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy

This is a film for anyone who has ever doubted whether life truly begins at 60. Oscar-nominated director Madden has cherry-picked some of the very best British actors for this bittersweet but ultimately life-affirming comedy-drama.

We open in downcast Britain, where we meet an assortment of pensioners each with their own grudge against modern living and who are not exactly making the most of their golden years.

What they need is a change of scenery. Fate obliges in the form of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a majestic retirement home in India that is looking for new residents following a renovation. After jumping at the chance to start afresh in sunnier climes, our sagacious gang have second thoughts when their destination turns out to be more crumbling ruin than palatial sanctuary.
