The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel + wine tasting (dir: John Madden, 2011, cert 18)
Whilst never breaking any new ground TBEMH is a sweetly good natured film featuring a wonderful cast of veteran actors with Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy excelling as part of a group of O.A.P’s moving to a retirement home in India. Of course the luxurious retreat promised online is decidedly plush free on arrival but that can’t stop this disparate band of plucky pensioners. Charming if a little slight. Throughout the screening wine experts, Tony Elvin from Hotel du Vin and Alok Mathur from Soul Tree Wines, will  be giving the audience an opportunity to sample wines from the Nasik Valley in India giving a description and some background information of each.

Thu 6 Jul 6pm at Electric, Station Street, Birmingham B5 4DY £24.50
