Based on then novel These Foolish Things by British writer Deborah Moggach, the new clip sees Judi Dench‘s recently widowed Evelyn enlisting the help of Bill Nighy‘s Douglas to try to fix the hotel’s phone.
Directed by John Madden (Shakespeare In Love), The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel follows a group of British retirees who travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.
Also starring British actors Maggie Smith, Celia Imrie, Tom Wilkinson and Dev Patel. the film was released in the UK yesterday, but it isn’t set to be released in the US until 4th May.
