"Memoirs of a Geisha" Photo Gallery Update

by | November 29, 2005 | Comments

Intrigued by the forthcoming adaptation of Arthur Golden’s NY Times best-seller, "Memoirs of a Geisha?" Caught up in the controversy over the pan-Asian casting of Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh, and others?

Whether you object to the ethnically-unfaithful Rob Marshall-directed production or are looking forward to seeing the Japan-set romantic epic on the big screen, you’ll want to check out the 48 production photos and stills in our photo gallery, here. With Oscar-time rapidly approaching, the early reviews are split — some say "Memoirs" is lush and moving, others that it’s awkwardly Americanized and oversimplistic. Rotten or fresh, one thing is for sure: Marshall’s shot himself some stunning pics!

"Memoirs of a Geisha" opens in limited release December 9 and goes wide December 16.
