"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" by John Madden

"Everything will be all right in the end... if it's not all right then it's not the end."

Deborah Moggach's novel was brought to screen by our very own "Shakespeare in Love" director who preciously give us so much of the wit and talent of British senior actors. All in all these people for one reason or another end in the same hotel in India, coping or not with the new culture, habits and some non civilized matters in a country itself learning how to modernize. The story is all about finding, whenever we think it's not possible...even in old age it is important to have dreams and to move on to achieve the best happiness we can  no matter the place we are living in or the money we have. Friendship is also a great point here...though at late age it is easier to be alone it is nonetheless easier to understand others. It is a simple film, a good and enjoyable one where we get inebriated by such great actors, specially our dames Judi and Maggie. I guess it is good to know that we can reinvent ourselves. It is a kind of  an "Eat Prey Love" with elderly people...
