...for the Elderly and Beautiful
I went expecting whimsy and charm. Plenty of that, but plenty of much more than that too. A love song to India, a homily on the duty to live life to
the full, and a tender-hearted examination of love in several forms. A
pure delight. Funny, unashamed of sentiment, well-paced, and performed
with zest and pleasure by a terrific cast. Dev Patel is preposterously
likeable and Judi Dench adds, as always, a degree of depth that lends
humanity without any ponderous earnestness. Maggie Smith - again as always -
gives a star turn.
