The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: well represented by its solid, veteran cast, this film has a story that doesn’t bring much new to the table. Originality, however, can be overrated. The film treats all its characters, if not equally, at least fairly; so much so that it seemingly neglects what could be evidence of a character growth. By the other hand, such minutiae aren’t needed, the audience can fill some blanks. In one word, pleasant.
