SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG) 122 mins
The all-star cast of elderly greats from 2011's smash hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel returns for this sequel that welcomes two new arrivals – Tamsin Greig and Richard Gere.
Sonny (Dev Patel) has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy - posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Gere) and Lavinia (Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone’s secrets.
