Directed by
John Madden

Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith are among the impressive ensemble cast of this gentle comedy-drama from Captain Corelli's Mandolin director John Madden.

A group of ageing Brits have been seduced by prospect of spending their retirement in the low-cost luxury of a plush Indian hotel that they've booked via a brochure. Evelyn is a widow who's been forced to downsize; Graham's an old India hand who's long yearned to return to the subcontinent; Douglas and his domineering wife Jean seem to be edging towards divorce; Muriel is a sour cockney who's made the trip for medical reasons and hates being away from England; and singletons Madge and Norman are looking for romance.

But, arriving at The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel in Jaipur, they discover that it is, in fact, a dump.
