The Painted Veil
A thoughtful, romantic friend of ours who has travelled the world working on agriculture projects flew back to Portland today. Along the way he watched The Painted Veil. First Post calls it "an intimate rendering of Somerset Maugham's tale of an odd-natured British bacteriologist, Walter Fane (Edward Norton), who marries the feisty Kitty (Naomi Watts) and whisks her away from the razzmatazz of London to a remote Chinese village in the thick of a cholera epidemic." Jeff liked it a lot. So did First Post.
