I won this!

Back in September, Gill at That British woman  was giving the Blu-ray disc of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and I won!!!!  When I saw that it had Judi Dench in it, I immediately wanted to see it, but didn't get the chance to set down and watch it till the past two days.  It is not anything I will watch again, but yet I don't regret watching it at all.  Its setting was India and I loved  seeing it..even if it was just the market and city streets, etc.  That is all interesting to me.

The characters all came to India for one reason or another, to stay at this hotel advertised as luxurious...but luxurious it was not.  The characters were all retirees...Maggie Smith (Muriel) came to have an operation, Judi Dench's(Evelyn) husband and just died and everything had to be sold to pay off the debts, and the others came for various reasons.

It sure made me wonder how I would react to be set down in some country where all was foreign to me.  I wonder if I would be as adaptable as some.  And if I had not already been thinking about the aging process, this would have made me think about it.  I don't know if that is good or bad.

If I were rating this on a scale of 1 to 5, I would probably give it a 3.8....mot quite a 4 but almost.
