I had the chance to see the advance screening of this last week. I was excited for it. The cast was so great! Dame Judi Dench, Dev Patel, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson to name a few.
The plot was unique and fun. A bunch of old people go to retire in India at a hotel just barely livable and managed by Dev Patel. While i've noticed that i don't like movies with a big ensemble cast, this one worked. It followed all their stories in a manner in which you could follow and not feel like it was just jumping around all over the place. I also thought the the story would be predictable but it kept me entertained all the way through. Old people are so cute! While its not perfect and i'd change a few things, it IS enjoyable.
