I loved this movie. Hard to find funny, tear-jerking (for me anyway), insightful, thought provoking, etc. that I enjoy these days.

I LOVE this movie. wonderful characters, excellent acting, and very accurate about what it feels like to be old. I will be watching this again and again.

Ecstatically life affirming and insightful!
I've had an ever changing list of "Favorite Movies" throughout my life and I realize now that how strongly a movie becomes beloved is 90% about how old I am at the time I see the film. Well, at 59 years old, this is my new favorite movie!
If you've traveled much, it takes you right back to the excitement, exhaustion, disappointment and exhilaration of arriving in a porter country, not knowing quite what to expect. It captures the personal changes that happen by being in a completely different culture - and all of the ways those completely different people are exactly the same as you and I - in their values, desires & dreams. An Exceptional Movie!

Delightful film and love all the actors especially Judi and Maggie. As others mentioned I didn't know what to expect so a bit slow in start but realized the film was building its characters. Finding happiness later in life is wonderful! **** stars.

Movie is entertaining. Has a lot of dry type humor. Probably more enjoyable for middle age viewers than younger.

Lovely film. Addressed culture, love and homosexuality. Of course, Bill Nighy is one of my favorite actors.

I didn't know what to expect before watching this, but I laughed a lot throughout the entire film. There were sad parts, but mostly this movie was upbeat and very enjoyable.

I liked this movie, and can only imagine being old and moving somewhere completely different, exciting and scary all at the same time.
