A deliberate retelling of 'The King and I' without the musical interludes. 'Anna and the King' is a slow, but ultimately rewarding period drama.

This is precisely the kind of "cast of thousands" extravaganza Hollywood rarely produces anymore and the movie's seductive visuals, charismatic performances and glorious scenery make for two and a half hours of immensely pleasurable viewing.

Pictorially splendid, it's largely large, epic and expansive. It's long, pack a lunch.
