We first learned just how enjoyable The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is from good friend and guest host Big Al Green, who saw it in Iowa City- reporting there were a fair amount of others there from Fairfield. The feedback was enthusiastic. Since then we've received several requests for it to be shown locally. Theatre Manager Marilou Parsons heard us, and forwarded on the requests.
We're delighted to tell you The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in Fairfield, Friday, 6/29. "A dream cast led by Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, and Bill Nighy lights up John (Shakespeare in Love) Madden's film- a story of late-life awakenings and self-discovery in India. Its ace in the hole is its pungent depiction of Jaipur's teeming streets, which gives a blinding splash of color. Impossible to resist."
We'll tell you about the new releases and what we've seen on video, including Jeff, Who Lives At Home a film by the Duplass brothers, which junior reviewer Shane Miller described as "a spiritual comedy". We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM Central, and again Sundays at 9:00 AM.
