Unemployment is devastating. The economic recovery and the hyper-critical, demonizing culture that has taken over Washington is enough to make us all crazy.
We need more distractions.
Then along comes a nice little movie that makes us smile and helps us to forget those out-of-touch, self-absorbed, banty roosters who strut the halls of Congress, the Executive Office Building and, of course, K Street.
I highly recommend the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a superb ensemble cast, a wonderful story and some clever, laugh-out-loud lines.
At the conclusion, the audience clapped. People left smiling.
There was nary a trace of the frustration at the hoards of banty roosters in Washington
