The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Posted on

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is about some British retirees (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy) that decide to retire to a less expensive country, India. They read an advertisement about the Marigold Hotel and when they arrive at the Hotel, they find it is not as nice as the advertisement.  Nonetheless, they try to make the best of it and as they do, they find they can find love and happiness again even in retirement.

The sequel, the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel continues to show how love can be found at any age.

Some British retirees (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy) decide to outsource their retirement to exotic — and less expensive — India. Lured by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and imagining a life of leisure in lush surroundings, they arrive and find that the Marigold is actually a shell of its former self. Though their new home is not quite what they had imagined, the retirees find that life and love can begin again when they let go of their pasts.
