QuartetThis year’s “Exotic Marigold Hotel” in so many ways: a group of (even more) elderly interact, look back at their lives and face the inevitable with pluck, grace and humor. This time, they’re residents of a home for retired musicians and opera singers. Everyone is preparing for the annual fundraiser, when a grand diva (Maggie Smith) arrives and, of course, refuses to sing. The cast (including many real retired musicians) finds great fun in the lively performances by Billy Connolly, Michael Gambon and Pauline Collins. Director Dustin Hoffman has kept things rolling along with a sprightly pace, lots of energy and minimal serious moments. Although it’s really just a trifle and totally predictable, the performances and direction combine to make it a sweet charmer for the 50+ set.
