Tonight I FINALLY got to watch the movie version of "Memoirs of a Geisha". I read the book back in May and really enjoyed it. When we returned to Guam after our vacation this summer in July, I put in a request at the library for the movie. But whomever had the movie out apparently was off island.
For months...and months! They finally returned it and I got it yesterday.
Overall, the movie stays pretty close to the book. There were a few things they left out - I'm sure mainly due to time. The movie is about two and half hours long.
Way long for me. Very glad I was able to watch this at home where I could hit pause. I don't think I could have sat in a theater for that long.
But very glad I did get to watch it - even if it took a few months.
