While we were in Phoenix for Christmas, we had a chance to catch up on some movies. One was Memoirs of a Geisha. I didn’t really know much about it going in, but I thought it was really good. Anne Marie had read the book, and said it held up pretty well to the original story.
The movie was a bit slow (and long), but the story was very interesting, and the performances were great. I would recommend this one if you are looking for break from action / adventure type movies and just want to see a good story told well. But, don’t go in tired, and make sure to pee before the movie starts. You’re going to be there for a while.
