The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel DVD Review

Monday, October 29, 2012

 An award-winning, all-star cast, led by Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith, lights up this "buoyant comedy laced with genuine emotion." (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) When seven cash-strapped seniors decide to "outsource" their retirement to a resort in far-off India, friendship and romance blossom in the most unexpected ways. Smart, life-affirming and genuinely charming, THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a "true classic that reminds us that it's never too late to find love and a fresh beginning at any age." (Rex Reed, The New York Observer) 
I cannot think of anything more glamorous than retirement. The time when work is done and we can finally relax and enjoy a life of leisure. Okay, for some it is not that spectacular. Many people feel the need to continue a productive life outside of one filled with the typical drama that is included in a nine to five. There are many ways to spice things up. You can start a business, or volunteer. Or, you can always move to India on the promise of a “paradise” retirement home.

That is exactly what happens in the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. A group of British seniors look to spice up their lives and leave their homeland for a retirement home in India. The advertisements they previewed made it seem as if the streets were paved with gold. They pack up and head to India, and are immediately disappointed at what they see when they arrive.

The hotel is run down and less than half of what it promised to be. There are many self-realizations and back stories that are included with each character. Their paths intertwine, and through each other. They find that there is much more to life that money, prosperity, and drama.

The film takes many funny turns along its journey. The British dames (especially those known to we Americans) are always a blast to watch. They would artfully own any script placed before them. Actors/ tresses, like Tom Wilkinson and Judi Dench bring the style to their characters, and always put on a good show.

Films like this one can make us laugh, keep us hooked, and truly carry important life lessons. These lessons are often obvious or of the overused type, but if you can look past the obscurity that is sometimes present, you will find entertainment and a little bit of conventional wisdom. If you can’t, this movie is still entertaining enough for everyone to enjoy.
