Anna and the King

(1999)
A novel by

 
 
Arriving in Siam as governess to the King's royal children, the recently widowed Anna brings with her a fiercely independent spirit, a passion for justice, and a hidden loneliness.  As she learns more about her exotic students and their proud, handsome father, the ancient, exotic land of Siam approaches a critical moment in history.  Fighting to keep his country independent, the King learns that a woman can be his equal - and more.

In Anna and the King, the world will rediscover the "almost true" story of love, loyalty, and loss that has moved generations to gentle smiles and bittersweet tears.

Rex Harrison and Irene Dunne starred in the Hollywood classic. Yul Brynner made King immortal on Broadway.  And now Academy-Award winning actress Jodie Foster and Asian screen superstar Chow Yun-Fat entrance the world all over again in the biggest, most romantic hit film since Titanic.  Don't miss this major movie event - or the spellbinding audio performed by Fiona Hutchison.
