The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Confidently directed by British filmmaker John Madden, and based on the novel by UK author Deborah Moggach, this captivating film was deservedly nominated for Best British Film at the BAFTAs. Starring high-class veteran British actors such as Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith, the film was solely produced by UK company Blueprint Pictures.





A group of British retirees (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy) decide to leave the UK and retire in India, seduced by advertisements for the lush and newly-restored Marigold Hotel. After arriving, they find a different, more run-down reality, but begin to explore how life and love can be reborn once they let go of their pasts.
