Product Description

Product Description

An award-winning, all-star cast, led by Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith, lights up this “buoyant comedy laced with genuine emotion.” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) When seven cash-strapped seniors decide to “outsource” their retirement to a resort in far-off India, friendship and romance blossom in the most unexpected ways. Smart, life-affirming and genuinely charming, THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a “true classic that reminds us that it’s never too late to find love and a fresh beginning at any age.” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer)

Some of the finest actors in England lend their formidable talents to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a charming fish-out-of-water yarn. The Brits, who include Evelyn (Judi Dench), Muriel (Maggie Smith), Douglas (Bill Nighy), and Graham (Tom Wilkinson), are planning retirement in a less expensive country. After "thorough research on the Internet," the group chooses what looks to be a grand, peaceful retreat, the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It turns out that the bloom is off this marigold--it's shabby, antiquated, and as chaotic as the city in India, Jaipur, where it is set. Who can adapt to this very different retirement experience, and who founders? That question lies at the heart of the plot of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The cast is uniformly superb, as the retirees bond and bicker and fall out and then try to encourage one another. And Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) shines as Sonny, the barely-holding-it-together Marigold Hotel manager. Patel and Tena Desae, who plays Sunaina, his girlfriend, are charming yet face adaptation struggles of their own, in a modern-day India still tied strongly to its traditions but rapidly charging into the future. And the young Indians also seem to represent the energetic future, as the Brits represent the old world that's fast falling. At its heart, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, deftly directed by John Madden, is an uplifting journey, allowing the viewer to feel what the retirees are discovering on the screen. When Evelyn sighs, "Nothing here has worked out quite as I expected," Muriel crisply replies, "Most things don't. But sometimes what happens instead is the good stuff." The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is most definitely the good stuff. --A.T. Hurley

Super story. Excellent cast. This is a movie for older people. Don't get it if you are twenty years old, you won't "get" it's meaning. This is the story of various people, older, looking to move in to a safe, different, happy kind of place to finish up their lives. There is a good mix of people with various complications. It's very good and certainly out of all the characters each of us can relate to one or more of them. They see an ad for a lovely hotel, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, in India offering cheap accommodation to older folks to go and spend their latter days there. What goes on is funny, poignant, adventurous, and exciting. Their lives are given a boost by the injection of a different culture, a culture they were all apprehensive about but that works for their good. It is a heart warming movie and I have watched it 3 times and enjoy it every time. Great actors. Highly recommended..

We only heard about this movie a couple of weeks ago. A movie critic on the radio mentioned it was fairly good and the radio announcer said he just saw it and agreed. So we took a chance and watched it mainly because of the fabulous seasoned actors whom we love in most movies. Can't say enough about it! Very, very enjoyable, quality acting, feel good movie. You don't need all that foul language or stupidity like so many other movies.

Clearly I really wanted to watch this movie as I ordered it & then discovered I already had an unopened copy on my shelf.

Was a good movie, best to watch both the 1st & 2nd back to back to get the full story.

Far more fun and power than the sequel, as usual, and a delightful Westernized Bollywood story with great actors from both worlds, this film takes a light road past the growing pains of contemporary India. But the ancient grandeur and current chaos will entrance any but the coldest viewers. A bedraggled bunch of Britishers are sucked into time at a barely-existant hotel, more a ruin than a marigold or any flower, but while there they discover charms they can't have foreseen, some Indian in origin, others the charms they thought they had lost in England. This will appeal to fans of the exotic, lovers of senior people, and movie-fans who want to see the old motif of strangers-in-a-hotel redone with vim and vigor.

Very interested and extremely well acted by a large cast of very well know British Actors and Actresses. The story was unusual which was good because so many movies are very predictable now and the cinematography was really great. If you like well acted (and a bit dry) British movies you are going to like this one and it's sequel was not quite as good, but was still very good.

What a great story and such superb acting. I have watched this movie twice; once by myself and last night with my husband. For someone that doesn't watch movies too often, he really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the humour, the setting and the real life plight of the elderly when they have retired. I will keep this movie in my collection and probably watch it again at a later time.
