    Movie Review......
    I just saw an amazing movie.

    I went to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel tonight. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A brief description from IMDB:
    British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than it's advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.

    It's main cast is a who's who from British acting:
    Judi Dench
    Maggie Smith
    Penelope Wilton
    Tom Wilkinson
    Bill Nighy
    Celia Imrie
    Ronald Pickup
    And also,
    Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire.

    One of the best things about the movie is that it is something new and fresh. It's not a rehash or a part 2 or part 10.
    It's a grown up story with emotions(I cried both sad and happy tears), not explosions and car/motorcycle/boat/plane chases.

    To steal a break down idea from my friend Mr. Owl...
    ENJOYMENT - A+
    STORY - A+
    TECHNICAL - A
    ACTING / DIALOG - A+
    VISUALS - A
    IMPACT - A+ (Positive)
    PACING - A
    VALIDITY - A
    MOOD - A+
    RE-WATCH? - A+

    Overall, if you can't guess, I give this movie an A+

Sounds like a few Oscar nominations in there somewhere.....

Maybe I'll go see that after I get paid again. (unless all the bills & expenses leave me broke again).

I thought that too, but I am not sure. Everything is listed as a 2011 film. So not sure if was out then, or just made then. I would hate to think it was out last year and didn't get any recognition. :o

It should be eligible for the 2013 Oscars considering they go by release date instead of "filmed date" & I don't remember seeing/hearing about this film before...maybe 2 months ago.

One of my LJ friends from across the pond said it was out a long time ago.
Not sure how long that was. :p

If it was released in New York or Los Angeles during 2012, it is in the running for the Academy Awards in 2013. It can show in other countries before coming here & won't be affected by that... I wonder if it got any BAFTA's instead...
