The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Directed and co-written by the UK’s John Madden along with British screenwriter and collaborator on the original film, Ol Parker, this effortlessly charming sequel examines the wants and desires of an older generation. Starring a highly-talented British cast including Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench and Dev Patel, the film was co-produced by UK-based Blueprint Pictures.





As his marriage to Sunaina (Tina Desai) approaches, Sonny (Dev Patel) plans to open a second residence for the elderly, but finds the project is more time-consuming than he’d initially anticipated. Meanwhile, Evelyn (Judi Dench) and Douglas (Bill Nighy) ponder their relationship, Norman (Ronald Pickup) and Carol (Diana Hardcastle) try to remain exclusive, and Madge (Celia Imrie) finds herself torn between two wealthy suitors.
