The Painted Veil (2006) short review

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would! Naomi Watts is the well-to-do wife of Edward Norton, a doctor in China. Things in their marriage go very wrong, and the two hash it out in a rural town where they go to help with a cholera outbreak. Nice 1930s costumes!
