As much a social history of early 20th-century Japan as it is a romantic drama, this visually-stunning film, based on the best-selling novel by Arthur Golden, tells the story of Chiyo, who is sold by her family at aged nine to become a geisha in the country's former capital, Kyoto. While there she becomes intense rivals with Hatsumomo, who fears the younger woman will become more successful than her. However, Chiyo comes under the wing of the kindly Mameha and, now called Sayuri, she becomes the most famous geisha in Japan. However, her unrequited love for the only man that ever showed her genuine affection and the onset of the Second World War change everything for Sayuri.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
