best_exotic_marigold_hotel_ver2A brilliant British cast highlights THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, which opens in U.S. theaters later this week. A feel-good movie for the DOWNTON ABBEY set, the film centers on a group of Brit retirees seeking to live out their lives in an Indian hotel that turns out to be considerably less luxurious than described. Directed by JOHN MADDEN, the all-star cast includes JUDI DENCH, TOM WILKINSON, MAGGIE SMITH, PENELOPE WILTON, BILL NIGHY and DEV PATEL.
Shot in and around Jaipur, the experience was a bit of a culture shock for some of the cast. During our recent interview with WILKINSON, the Academy Award-winning actor admitted his feelings about shooting in India. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
