The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.
The studio that brought us "Slumdog Millionaire" and the director of "Shakespeare In Love" take us back to India with a star-studded cast.
For a disparate group of English pensioners (Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie and Ronald Pickup), retirement takes an unconventional turn when they abandon their homeland, enticed by advertisements for THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, a seemingly luxurious sanctuary for “the elderly and beautiful” in Jaipur, India. On arrival, they discover that the hotel falls somewhat short of the romantic idyll promised in the brochure, but they are gradually won over by the ever-optimistic young manager Sonny (Dev Patel), and tentatively embark on a new adventure, finding that life can begin again when you let go of the past.
One of the most joyous and entertaining films about redefining old age, growing old with hope, demonstrating how art illuminates life and, how the human spirit remains undimmed, even when the brightest of its stars start to fade.
