Contains strong language, moderate sex references and racist remarks

British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than advertised, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.

THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a comedy drama in which a group of British pensioners are thrown together when they move into what promises to be a luxurious retirement home in Jaipur.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as some milder bad language.

Sex

There are some moderate sex references, including several comic remarks about a character who has Viagra.

Discrimination

There are some racist remarks which are spoken by an elderly woman (for example, she says of a black doctor 'He can wash all he likes - that colour's not coming out.', and refers to Asian people moving in packs because it makes it 'easier to rob you blind'). However, she gradually realises that her attitudes are unacceptable, and her comments are never condoned by the other characters, with several people criticising what she says. While these comments have the potential to cause offence, they are not endorsed by the work as a whole.
