THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL
Directed by John Madden
With Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson
2011, UK/USA/UAB, 124 minutes, rated PG-13
Seven disparate, financially strapped British retirees are lured for a stay at a new "luxury hotel for the elderly and beautiful" in Jaipur, India. "Luxury" turns out to be a bit of an exaggeration, and these visitors have wildly differing responses to their predicament in this strange land. Slowly, they learn that it's never too late to leave your comfort zone and explore new horizons.
"We suspect that the film will be about their various problems and that the hotel will not be as advertised. What we may not expect is what a charming, funny and heartwarming movie this is, a smoothly crafted entertainment that makes good use of seven superb veterans." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A refreshing, mature fairy tale." Claudia Puig, USA Today
"A rare reminder from movies that the grand emotions are not only for the young and the middle-aged. They're the sweetness and torment of life until the last light goes out."
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
