  • The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

    2011. United Kingdom. Directed by John Madden. A group of British retirees are enticed to spend their sunset years in India at The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, advertised as a luxury resort and residence for the "elderly and beautiful." Upon arrival, they encounter dust, chaos, a hotel in near ruin, and a very earnest and young hotelier named Sonny. But Evelyn, Graham, Douglas, and Muriel, members of a generation accustomed to making lemonade out of lemons, swiftly adapt to their foreign environs. For their own reasons, they are each "outsourced" to India, and in order to help Sonny keep the Marigold running, they must become the active, vital, talented, and needed individuals they once were. Director John Madden is best known for his multiple-Oscar-winning 1998 film Shakespeare in Love. Print Courtesy of Fox Searchlight Pictures. 124 min.
