The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel hits the big screen today and brings together an super exciting and very experienced cast.
When you see Judi Dench on a cast list you know you should check the movie out but when she is joined by, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie and Ronald Pickup you know you are in for a treat.
But there is a fresh face in the movie and that belongs to Mr Dev Patel as he is making his first movie outing since The Last Airbender.
For a disparate group of English pensioners, retirement takes an unconventional turn when they abandon their homeland, enticed by advertisements for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a seemingly luxurious sanctuary for ‘the elderly and beautiful’ in Jaipur, India.
On arrival, they discover that the hotel falls somewhat short of the romantic idyll promised in the brochure.
But they are gradually won over by the ever-optimistic young manager Sonny (Dev Patel), and tentatively embark on a new adventure, finding that life can begin again when you let go of the past.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is out now.
