The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Directed by John Madden; Written by Ol Parker)
Starring: Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle, Tina Desai, Shazad Latif, Lillete Dubey, Tamsin Greig, Richard Gere
Why I loved this film: This movie allows you to reunite with an incredible cast and their charming characters, which I am sure are what made the first film such a hit. Sonny and Muriel are the highlight of the story for me, they are hilarious, no matter what. Although you do see a softer side to Muriel, which comes to a particularly emotional point at the end.
But the rest of the cast were as brilliant. When I first realised Richard Gere was going to be in it, I did not really see the point, but he showed that he can be just as funny as the others.
If you loved the first film (who hasn't) then you will enjoy this one.
