Anna and the King (1999)

Directed by
Andy Tennant

Academy Award winner Jodie Foster and international sensation Chow Yun-Fat star in this epic retelling of a classic, true-life story.

When English schoolteacher, Anna Leonowens (Jodie Foster), arrives in the exotic land of Siam to teach the children of King Mongkut (Yun-Fat Chow), her Western sensibilities clash with the ruler's Eastern ways.

The tension builds as Mongkut learns that outside forces are conspiring against his regime.

With the political intrigue set to explode, Anna and the King must become allies in a daring fight to save Siam from dangerous enemies bent on destruction.

In the tradition of Braveheart and The English Patient, comes Anna and the King, a sweeping masterpiece filled with passion and adventure.
