The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is based on Deborah Moggach’s book, These Foolish Things, and follows a group of British retirees who decide to “outsource” their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India.
Enticed by brochures for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and bolstered with visions of a life of leisure, they arrive in Jaipur, Rajasthan, to find the palatial residence a shell of its former self.
Though the new environment is less luxurious than imagined, they are transformed by their shared experiences, discovering that life and love can begin again when you let go of the past. (© Fox Searchlight)
