The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a fun movie with an all-star veteran British cast.  Although India isn’t at the top of my bucket list, the exotic setting is an interesting backdrop that appeals to my adventurous spirit.  I liked the balanced mix of engaging stories and humor, and appreciate the fact that older characters have some vitality and depth.  Dev Patel provides a youthful contrast to the “highly experienced” cast and steals the show with some great comic moments.  Besides being entertaining, the movie is also a social commentary on some of the issues that elders face such as financial insecurity, disconnection and a changing society.

Highly recommended!

    You might want to check out an older film with Dame Judy called The Last of The Blonde Bombshells! It is a real treat.

    will check out this movie, sounds like fun, like all the actors in it. When I read the title of your post, I thought it had something to do with cleaning. Marygold is a brand of rubber gloves in the UK… 🙂
