THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL Blu-ray Review
I finally had the chance to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, after missing it in theaters. The buzz surrounding this film is spot on, making this one of the best ensemble films of the year. John Madden directed the fantastic cast of veteran thespians, which include Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Penelope Wilton, Tom Wilkinson, Dev Patel, and Ronald Pickup.The film is based on Deborah Moggach‘s 2004 novel, and is a nice mix of drama and comedy.

- Casting Legends: In case you needed any more reason to love the fantastic cast, here is a feature that runs through each of the stars.
- Welcome to the “Real” Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: If you are an architecture and history fiend like me, then you will love this walk-through of the former palace where the film was shot.
