Product Description

For a disparate group of English pensioners (Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie and Ronald Pickup), retirement takes an unconventional turn when they abandon their homeland, enticed by advertisements for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a seemingly luxurious sanctuary for “the elderly and beautiful” in Jaipur, India. On arrival, they discover that the hotel falls somewhat short of the romantic idyll promised in the brochure, but they are gradually won over by the ever-optimistic young manager Sonny (Dev Patel), and tentatively embark on a new adventure, finding that life can begin again when you let go of the past.
The original soundtrack is the work of Thomas Newman, one of the most respected composers in the movie business, who has scored over fifty feature films including The Iron Lady, American Beauty, Shawshank Redemption, Wall-E, Finding Nemo and The Green Mile, as well as writing the memorable theme music for the TV series Six Feet Under. Newman has been nominated for an Academy Award on no less than ten occasions, nine times in the category Best Original Score and once for Best Original Song. He has won a BAFTA, two Grammys and an Emmy, and has also been nominated for a Golden Globe.
Born in Los Angeles, Yale-educated Thomas Newman comes from a prominent Hollywood musical dynasty: his father, brother, sister and uncle have all composed for movies, and the singer-songwriter Randy Newman is his cousin.

I love this soundtrack and play it all the time. The music is beautiful and uplifting. I work to it, relax to it, dream to it. Perfect recording quality - no problems there. Can highly recommend.

The music from this film is as uplifting as the film. It is relaxing to listen to at any time of the day. I bought this cd as a gift for my husband.

Loved the music and style but the bitty nature of the disc was a bit of a let down, for e.g. One track is literally 48 secs long whilst another is 51 secs long. This might be representational of what was in the film but I would be surprised if Mr Newman stopped his composition at these lengths so I assume they have been cut down to edit into the film. It clearly states " music from the Motion Picture" , so there can be no surprises but it did detract for me afraid.

This film is such a feel good film on a par with Mama Mia. I was going to lend it to my mum and dad, but could not bear to part with it, so I'm just going to buy their own copy for Mother's Day. This film is very funny, very touching, and makes you want to go to India, for a LONG stay. :-)

This is a very good but quite sad read. The movie really focused on the amusing and positive side of the story.. the book is a rather sad and at times depressing look at old age. Worth reading but nothing like the movie

Having bought the DVD and thoroughly enjoyed it I decided to buy the CD. The music is very atmospheric and extremely relaxing. I haven't enjoyed a CD quite so much in a long time.
