A grand retelling of an iconic story.

July 2, 2004
The third major screen version of the story, has much to recommend it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
January 29, 2003
A deliberate retelling of 'The King and I' without the musical interludes. 'Anna and the King' is a slow, but ultimately rewarding period drama.

Like too many movies, this one cannot bear to end quietly and gracefully.

Foster, I believe, sees right through this material and out the other side, and doesn't believe in a bit of it.

Disappointing.
January 1, 2000
Tennant seems genuinely unsure what mood he's striving for here.

This may be the best and healthiest date movie of the season.

A live-action family film with brains.

A great family movie!
