The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

bestexoticmarigoldGet these veteran actors together and it’s hard to fail; they play six elderly Brits who relocate to a hotel in India for various reasons, ultimately hoping to improve their lives. The dialogue and the characters they play may be clichĆ©d, but as expected the stars perform with conviction (especially Judi Dench) and that goes a long way. The story is feel-good entertainment for an older audience without ever rocking the boat; some of the manipulation is too predictable. Still, the story moves along briskly in spite of its running time and colorful Indian locations are a boost.

2012-Britain. 122 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ John Madden. Novel: Deborah Moggach (“These Foolish Things”). Cast: Judi Dench (Evelyn Greenslade), Bill Nighy (Douglas Ainslie), Maggie Smith (Muriel Donnelly), Tom Wilkinson, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrieā€¦ Dev Patel.

Trivia: Peter O’Toole, Julie Christie, Eileen Atkins and John Hurt were allegedly considered for parts.Ā Followed by The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015).
