THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL
Saturday 8.30pm, Showcase (PG) ★★★
Director John Madden ( Shakespeare In Love) was responsible for this charming, feel-good film that seemingly features every veteran British star of stage and screen, among them Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Ronald Pickup. They are tourists of a certain age who venture to India where they find themselves staying at a hotel that is not quite what the brochures promised. India affects them all, and the hotel turns out to have its attractions, not the least of which is the enthusiasm of their host Sonny Kapoor ( Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire fame). Enjoy.
