The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Happy Saturday Morning! 
Just popping in to tell you about a wonderful movie that I saw last night... 
Classic chick flick (if your an old chick anyway) with all your favs from over the pond! 

Caution: mild nudity and adult themes... so not for the young chickies... 

So six of us saw it last night and 5 said that they LOVED it!!! Only one said that it was "ok". 
Shot in India the scenery and photography is beautiful.  The subject matter... well I guess you 
could say it it is not only current but relevant as well! 

1hr 58min‎‎ - Rated PG-13‎‎ - Comedy/Drama‎
Director: John Madden - Cast: Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Dev Patel

A group of British retirees decide to "outsource" their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India. Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and bolstered with visions of a life of leisure, they arrive to find the palace a shell of its former self. Though the new environment is less luxurious than imagined, they are forever transformed by their shared experiences, discovering that life and love can begin again when you let go of the past.

Let me know if you did too.

I saw it last week. Was nice to see all those wonderful actors together - and the cinematology was very artistic.

I have been looking forward to seeing this and am just waiting for someone to go with me. I am a huge fan of Dame Judy and I also like Dame Maggie and I know the cinematography is supposed to be magnificent. I had been planning to join the Friday flower party but missed. Do you know what the flower is for next month? My yard seems to be about a month behind yours. Have a wonderful weekend. Linda

We love movie night, so we might check this one out! It sounds very cute, and I love Maggie Smith and Judy Dench. Is this an indie film?

Best film I've seen in years. Great story line and brilliant acting. xx

ps, I just read the first persons comment. I loved Eat Pray Love, equally as good.

This is on my "to watch" list.

Yes, God does give us more than we can handle, as HE wants us to lean on Him.

I wanted to let you know that at the 11th hour a miracle has happened. I knew it would :) He is ever faithful. Details will follow soon. Thank you for your encouraging friendship.
