Based on W. Somerset Maugham’s 1925 enduring novel of the same name, Curran’s dreamy, steamy romantic drama follows a careless British bacteriologist’s wife (Naomi Watts) as she accompanies her husband (Edward Norton in fine fettle) to Mainland China in the 1920s, a country then-seething with revolutionary unrest, to help fight a raging cholera epidemic. There, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery that offers an unexpected, and deeply poignant, chance for redemption, with Stuart Dryburgh's elegant cinematography heightening the heady emotions.
