The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a 2012 film starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith. It's about a group of unconnected seniors who end up retiring to the same hotel in India. What a delightful film! The day after we watched it we went to the local music/video store and bought the sequel. We loved this one!
The New York Times concludes with this: "Besides its sterling cast, its ace in the hole is its pungent depiction of Jaipur’s teeming streets, which give an otherwise well-mannered movie a blinding splash of color." The Telegraph calls it "sweet-natured, good-hearted and decent."
Roger Ebert gives it 3 1/2 out of 4 stars. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics rating of 78%.
