THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (dir. John Madden, starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson and Dev Patel) follows a group of British retirees who decide to “outsource” their 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.

Here is the full trailer:


While this film is chock full of  ‘national treasures’ and is almost guaranteed to be charming, I am not sure that I will pay to see this at my local.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is scheduled for limited release starting on May 4th, 2012.

Will you be catching it?


  1. I can’t wait for this film. It looks a lovely story, and my mum has requested I take her so can’t be bad.

    thanks for sharing

  2. Wow, the cast alone is a reason to see this one!

  3. I think I’ll be seeing this though I usually wait for Netflix. I adore Judy Dench and Bill Nighy and the rest of the cast doesn’t sound bad either. 🙂

  4. I saw a trailer for this yesterday before War Horse, it looks fun. Great cast. Some of the one-liners stuck in my head, one in particular. ‘Everything works out ok in the end, so if it’s not ok, then it isn’t the end’. I think my wife will enjoy this too! Thanks for this.
