It was fantastic! I watched it almost 2 weeks ago, but I absolutely loved it. The storyline, the actors, the characters, the surprises, the director and producers. Everything, other than the fact it was just a movie, so had to end. But as Dev Patel’s character says “But if it’s not alright then it’s not yet the end”, so the movie came to an end, and I guess everything was as alright as it possibly could have been.
I don’t think you have to be an ‘older’ person to see this, I really think that if you have not seen this, and you need a laugh or to take your mind of something, take a few hours out to go and watch it. Stop reading and go with friends or family of any age to watch it.
Maggie Smith plays a woman who can simply be described as racist in the beginning but by the end she saves the day, well at least the hotel. Dev Patel is the young hotel owner who is struggling to keep it floating. However, with the arrival of the British visitors things work out, slowly but surely, at first it is clear a few of the guests don’t want to be there, in the hotel, or India! We see glimpses of everybody’s lives and what makes them individuals. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for?
Now that The Woman in Black has been ticked off my “to watch list” I can add some of the other movies that I am looking forward to seeing.
A Dangerous Method is still on my list, as is Man on a Ledge. What else? Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, but I have heard a lot of criticism about this, which actually saddens me as Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock are, in my eyes, two of the best actors. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is another movie on my hit list. If you have read any of my other posts you may notice that this movie does not seem similar to those that I usually watch… Well I actually really want to see this as Bill Nighy is one of my favourite actors and has a brilliant voice, and of course, accent. Not to ignore Dev Patel who had a fantastic role in Slumdog Millionaire, which I will bluntly say, got him famous. Lastly and most fantastically I can not go without name dropping the wonderful and magnificent Dame Judi Dench (or M, as I shall remember her to be from the Bond films.)
A movie which I have only recently heard about is Tyrannosaur, this British film should not be forgotten, it looks like a hidden but good find. This may have to be the next one I make a point of going to see!
