The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

by Christine Autrand Mitchell

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a retirement community in India where the Brits can “outsource” their “elderly and beautiful.” Directed masterfully by John Madden (The Debt, Shakespeare in Love, Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown) with some of the best older generation actors Britain has to offer: Dame Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, and I could go on. I’ve been waiting months for this film and it didn’t disappoint.
