If you haven’t seen it – go! If you have seen it – go again, you’ll find new moments to love that you missed the first time around.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a delight, a real treasure to share with your spouse/partner and your best gal pals.  The screen comes alive with the chaos and beauty of India as the characters experience a new, life-transforming journey into retirement in this totally foreign universe.  This group of British retirees, who face the jolting reality of the cost and harshness of retirement in England, follows the call of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a recently renovated “palace” catering to the needs of sophisticated Brit retirees.

The story is beautiful.  As gal pal Dayle says, “I laughed and I cried and I laughed again.”  The script is superb, the scenery remarkable, and the cast exquisite.  Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Peter O’Toole and Tom Wilkinson portray the challenges of facing the last chapter of life and the joy of exploring new adventures.  This is a must see.

You might also enjoy the book or want to suggest it as a Book Club read.
