Virtual Summer Vacation: Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

You Could Have Killed Off Norman

This week on our virtual vacation we are staying at The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel in Jaipur, India. While this is a movie that provides beautiful images of India, our mission examines how its colonial lens affects the movie’s portrayal of the characters. Our Agents imagine bringing to life the romance and the stories that we see hiding in plain sight within the movie. This inevitably leads to someone deciding that this is a story that would be better told in a TV series. We have our brand, and it is always for more romance and more depth and diversity.

ISO: Romance novels about senior lovers.
