Participant's mission with The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is to stimulate seniors to continued lives of adventure and contribution. As someone old enough for Medicare, I am all for that.
Actor Tom Wilkinson, who is a industry oxymoron: The star who doesn't enjoy talking about himself. In "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" he plays a member of a group of Brits who decide to "outsource" their retirement to less expensive and exotic India, only to find the destination isn't quite what was promised in the brochure.

All in all, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a charming film with a cast to die for and a setting to fly for. If you want to escape your studies for two hours and leave the British winter behind you, I would definitely recommend it.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel feels a bit like a beautiful photo book, bursting with richly colored photographs from India. A convincing argument to visit.
