Review of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
So, we watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel tonight for Family Movie Night. It was The Girl's turn, and her choice -- although it was just a mild preference (we're running low on movies that interest her). But: she liked the movie.
The movie is about seven retirement-aged Brits who, for one reason or another -- but for most of them, financial - they retire to a retirement home in India (because it's cheaper than remaining in the UK). A subplot is that the hotel manager -- who (as near as I can tell) inherited the failed hotel from his father, although his brothers are co-owners -- is trying to make it a success, even though his enthusiasm outstrips his business abilities.
Good acting, good dialogue, well-made; a good story.
Totally worth watching.
I think there was some bad language.
