The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The prompt for today was to write a 450 word piece using the word sand as inspiration.  I have my rough draft nearly done and I’ll do my editing and then post the finished story in the next couple of days.  In the meantime, please enjoy this movie trailer for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  I saw it yesterday, and I can’t recommend it enough. I can say without hesitation that it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time.

Happy Friday, all of you dear readers of mine! Have a wonderful day!


  1. Valerie, I love coming to your blog because of your upbeat loveliness...

    I do want to see this film so came for just one night in my town, and that was the night of a big sporting event I couldn't miss (because I made the dinner!) ...but I will surely look around in other theaters.

  2. I don't get to the movies, but I am TOTALLY going to look for this once it comes out on dvd!

  3. Thanks Dawn!

    I know you will just love this film when you get to see it-and you will:)

    Lisa-you'd love it too! The acting is so good and the characters are so endearing. It really is a great movie!

  4. I'd been wondering about this movie and am so glad to hear good things. I think it may still be playing around here (although I do so hate how quickly they seem to move stuff out!). Can't wait to read the sand story.

  5. Another blogger I really love recommended this movie. I think it's a sign that I need to see it.

  6. I saw that our theater had this when we went to see "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and I wondered what is was about. It's not there anymore which is a shame because after watching the trailer I really want to see it. I think I will just go ahead and buy it when it comes out!

  7. Kim and Zim:)

    I guarantee you will both love this movie-whenever you get a chance to see it. In my humble opinion, it was one of the best movies I've ever seen!

    p.s. Kim-it's good to see you, and Zim, welcome!
