Script to Screen LIVE: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Ol Parker image

Read the script, then watch the movie at the festival with a live commentary by Ol Parker, discussing the development and execution of the screenplay – it’s our own unofficial DVD ‘chat track’

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which spawned a sequel (also written by Ol) was both a national and international smash hit.

In this Script To Screen LIVE session, you can read the shooting script while watching the film and listening to Ol’s commentary. Alongside scene by scene conversations, we will also speak about how he adapted the book and developed the screenplay that attracted such a stellar cast of British legends.

This is a unique opportunity to get access to the whole process that brought a classic British hit to the screen.
