Memoirs of a Geisha

I read this book when I was in Durham as part of a work book club; I thought that I was going to see the movie soon afterwards.  However, I never made it to the movie theater.  It arrived in my mailbox last weekend and I started it then.  Since I had to do homework (stupid law school), it took me over a week to finish the movie.  Overall, I thought the adaptation was good.  Of course, some things were synthesized and other things were left out all together.  The cinematography was gorgeous.  I was surprised to find out that none of the actors were Japanese and I thought that the movie would be subtitled.

Which Screen: Small screen is fine.
