On my flight home yesterday I had the good fortune to see the film “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” on the plane. I had already seen it in the theater a few weeks ago. If you haven’t seen it yet, try to–it’s probably only playing at arts cinemas at this point. The colors, smells, and overall chaos and beauty of India jump out at you from the big screen.
Even if you can only watch it at home, make it a priority. The characters portrayed by an all-star cast of British actors in their senior years are deeply compelling and inspiring. I want to be Judy Dench’s character when I grow up. It’s a beautiful illustration of how it’s never too late for transformation. I’ll leave you now with one of my favorite quotes from the film:
“Things always work out in the end. If they don’t, it’s not the end.”
P.S. The photo doesn’t have anything to do with the movie. I just wanted to share with you the incredible view I’ve enjoyed from my sister’s house while visiting her in Seattle this week. I guess it’s my version of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
