Brunch and a movie: The Best Exotic Marigold hotel

by Toby Woollaston

Took the day off on Friday. I went into Howick with Seema, and had brunch at Café Paris. I enjoyed the Eggs Benedict and coffee, while Seema had the “big breakfast”, and then we shuffled off to the Monterey theater to watch The Best Exotic Marigold hotel. A matinee session during a weekday, in a suburb with a high percentage of retired folk, and a movie about retirees dealing with their “golden years”; you would expect a healthy amount blue rinse in the audience to cast a hue over the silver screen … and you’d be right, we were the youngest people in the theater by some way.
