Conclusion: There is something satisfying and refreshing about little films that don't focus so much on a complex plot, but tell an emotional and genuinely heartfelt story about likeable characters that are easy to connect with. That's exactly the type of film that 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' is.
Conclusion: I think I've found the perfect stocking stuffer for my grandparents this year. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is that rare film that's neither condescending nor perversely sentimental about the process of growing old.
Summary: If you like films about travel, if you like watching film legends work together, you might want to check into “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” Consummate professionals and some sharp writing and interesting cinematography make it worth the trip.
