Anna and the King
Academy Award® winner Jodie Foster and international star Chow Yun-Fat bring to life the epic true story of a woman who challenged the heart of a king and inspired the destiny of a nation.

If she has preconceived notions about the East, the King has similar notions about the West. Amid the danger of growing political unrest, their respect for each other slowly turns into something more.
