Synopsis

A group of British retirees are enticed by advertisements to travel to India to stay at the Marigold Hotel, which has been restored as a retirement home by a young Indian man (Dev Patel) with the best of intentions.

However, when they arrive, they find the living accommodations aren't quite as luxurious as portrayed in the brochure. Despite having to cope with broken furniture, phones that don't work and food they can't pronounce, they share a number of unconventional but hilarious experiences that bring them closer together.

Based on the novel "These Foolish Things" by Deborah Moggach.

  • 5 stars "After a full life as a professor teaching at VU , then UCLA , McMaster in USA,Canada and Egypt I find myself at 87, retired and having to totally recreate my life or existence as you will. This film has so much truth in it as well as top flight actors, actresses. I feel sorry for the people who "could not bear the film" or 'want their money back' . They seem like people who wish to avoid life while putting their heads in the sand."
  • 3 stars "cheesy but likeable film about old people, who need a change in life."
  • 5 stars "Wonderful movie I watched with my mom who is also "beginning" again. Has laughter, tears, and good advice. Overall, a warm, feel good movie."
