The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel follows a group of British retirees who decide to “outsource” their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India. Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and bolstered with visions of a life of leisure, they arrive to find the palace a shell of its former self. Though the new environment is less luxurious than imagined, they are forever transformed by their shared experiences, discovering that life and love can begin again when you let go of the past.

Besides its sterling cast, its ace in the hole is its pungent depiction of Jaipur’s teeming streets, which give an otherwise well-mannered movie a blinding splash of color. — Stephen Holden, New York Times

A charming, funny and heartwarming movie … a smoothly crafted entertainment that makes good use of seven superb veterans. — Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Marigold Hotel” is too well made to be dismissed and contains too much truth to be scorned. — Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

A sterling cast and a fine balance of comedy and poignancy make this story of unfulfilled Brit retirees discovering new life in India a pleasure-filled journey. — David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
