Reflections on a Marigold Hotel

Mineral Wells Index

By Sue Seibert | sue_seibert@att.net

Raf and I just finished watching “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” I had wanted to see it ever since it advertising for it began on television. It was thoroughly enjoyable, and it is amazing to me that it was shown in so few theaters in the United States.  

The stars of this movie were top notch – are top notch – and you will recognize many of their names even though they are English. There is Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Ronald Pickup, Penelope Wilton and Celia Imrie, to name a few. Look them up.  You’ll know their faces, if not their names! Many have won top awards for acting, and at least two have been knighted by Queen Elizabeth.

I feel I have to be leery of movies, books, etc. having to do with getting old. At my age I don’t even enjoy jokes about aging, mainly because I don’t feel I’m there yet. I don’t mind my age, but I do mine being made fun of! Even if the one who’s making fun is my age or older.
