The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has a British cast to die for, and any film which has Bill Nighy, Dames Maggie and Judy and Tom Wilkinson on the ticket is worth double the price.

A group of retirees find themselves in India, thrust together in the most unlikely of retirement homes, each with their own stories and secrets.

Much happens in a short space of time, as those secrets are revealed, and the consequences come home to roost.

This little charmer is a triumph over cliche; the cast, the characters and the delightful script endearing themselves to such a degree you forgive the film its faults.

One enormously jarring cheesie scene aside, this was such an enjoyable watch, and any time spent with Bill Nighy and Judy Dench is a good time.

Four stars.
