Excellent Acting and a Wonderful STORY!
I have become more disillusioned with movies in recent years. If you take away the remakes, sequels and action movies that rely on special effects, gun play, car chases, explosions and killings, there is not much left. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel actually had a plot, story line, a wonderful ensemble cast and a great setting. It opened my eyes to the beauty of India (as well as its poverty). It also drove home the issues faced by many seniors around the world.
It is comforting to know that there are still film makers who want to tell a story and are confident (or daring) enough to do it without computers and technological wizardry. 4 stars, two thumbs up and, I would expect Oscar nominations!
