The story concerns Anna Leonowens, an English school teacher in Siam, in the late 19th century, who becomes the teacher of King Mongkut’s many children and wives. It was mostly shot in Malaysia, particularly in the Penang, Ipoh and Langkawi region.

Anna and the King was released in the United States on December 17, 1999 by 20th Century Fox. The film was subject to controversy when the Thai government deemed it historically inaccurate and insulting to the royal family and banned its distribution in the country. It received mixed reviews from critics who praised the production values, costume design, and musical score but criticised its screenplay and length, as well as Foster’s choice to play the character which many deemed as a role that required her to play beneath her intelligence. The film was a disappointment at the box office, grossing $114 million worldwide, against its $92 million budget. It received two nominations at the 72nd Academy Awards: Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.
