Based on the best-selling book THESE FOOLISH THINGS by Deborah Moggach, THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL stars an impressive roster of British acting treasures as a group of retirees who head to Bangalore after being enticed by the exotic promises of the Marigold Hotel. Once there, however, the realities of the rundown establishment are far from luxurious.
A small group of retirees learn that the life they want to live might not be the life they need to live after pooling their resources to spend their twilight years in India. Upon arriving at the once-opulent Marigold Hotel, however, the eager pensioners come to realise that rumours of the building's restoration have been greatly exaggerated. But just when it starts to seem that the privileged seniors have been swindled out of their life savings, they summon the courage to sever their ties to the past, and embrace their new life with a sense of wonder and adventure. Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, and Dev Patel star in this uplifting comedy-drama from director John Madden (THE DEBT, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE).
