The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

From the page to screen: The adaptation of books to film

A diverse group of British retirees look to the future rather than the past, and set up home in ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and the Beautiful’ in India.  All are hoping for a better life there, although this means something very different to each of them.  This is a charming film about optimism in an amusing and touching reflection on growing older, with a stellar cast including Judy Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson.
