Sunday afternoon was a movie afternoon in my house, with something I just happened to pick up at Blockbuster, and I'm so glad I did -- The Painted Veil, starring Edward Norton and Naomi Watts. The story is based on the novel by Somerset Maugham, and filmed largely in rural China. It's gorgeous.
A British doctor in Shanghai brings his new upper-class wife to China. She strays. He decides to punish her by taking her to the middle of a cholera outbreak in a rural village, where they live in silent hatred. But ultimately this is a beautiful story of redemption and grace, powerfully supportive of marriage and sacrificial love. The CT review calls it a love story that starts after the wedding, and that's a great description.
