The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

What it's about:

A group of British retirees decides to "outsource" its retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India. Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and bolstered with visions of a life of leisure, they arrive to find the palace a shell of its former self.

Though the new environment is less luxurious than imagined, they are forever transformed by their shared experiences, discovering that life and love can begin again when you let go of the past.

What the critics thought:

"Charming, delightful and highly amusing - just what you'd expect from the star studded cast of veterans."
- Anna Smith, Empire Magazine


"This poignant tale has an irresistible, heart-warming energy and also boasts sharp dialogue, skilfully interwoven subplots and a treasure trove of British stars giving a masterclass in ensemble acting."
- Alan Jones, Radio Times


"Good intentions alone do not make a great film, and it's certainly not: but it's sweet-natured, good-hearted and decent."
- David Gritten, Daily Telegraph



British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.

The movie was very charming, definitely agree with Osiris. It gave a good representation of India, which having visited, I enjoyed watching. Even my 4 year old sat through this movie, despite its length.
