All throughout the film, I kept looking at the lead actress and thinking that she looked very familiar. Where had I seen her before…? I looked her up and she’s Gong Li. Turns out I’d seen her several times before – in Raise the Red Lantern, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Hannibal Rising. In Memoirs of a Geisha and Hannibal Rising, she plays the part of a Japanese person, but she is actually Chinese.
Saturday, Bryan and I went to Shanghai for sushi supper. While we were there we ran into Kayla (who is in my Japanese class) and her family. The sushi was great, thanks for asking.
Next weekend is Festival of Nations! Alas, before the weekend…I have a lonnnng week of lots and lots of schoolwork ahead of me.
