ANNA AND THE KING (Theatrical Release USA 1999)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Anna and the King—wonderful remake of the 1956 Yul Brenner and Deborah Kerr classic, Anna and the King—does not perform as a musical, has a completely different tone, loses much of the romantic element of the previous movie and serves up better entertainment value. Chow Yun-Fat and Jodie Foster team well to give a background story of the westernization of Siam (Thailand).
