Critic Reviews of "Anna and the King"San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Close, but no cigar.New York PostJanuary 01, 2000
Lush, beautifully shot, but quite draggy.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
It is pleasant, occasionally amusing -- and often dull.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Tennant seems genuinely unsure what mood he's striving for here.Village VoiceJanuary 01, 2000
Serve as a slap in the face.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Nothing special, nothing particularly heartwarming.Common Sense MediaDecember 21, 2010
Intense, mature version of The King and I.eFilmCritic.comJuly 23, 2007
Handsome and well-appointed ... but still one of the most boring films in recent memory.Bangor Daily News (Maine)October 06, 2005
A grand retelling of an iconic story.Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)July 02, 2004
The third major screen version of the story, has much to recommend it.Cinema SightJanuary 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.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 23, 2003
... the pacing of the film is slow enough to make the typical Merchant-Ivory production feel like a Nine Inch Nails video
