Sparks fly again as the king of Siam and the western teacher he hires return to the big screen for a 60th anniversary celebration. Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic movie musical The King and I (1956) will be shown at the Sun & Surf Cinema on August 31!
Siam, 1862. British schoolteacher and recent widow Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr) is sent to Siam as a teacher for the royal children. But she immediately clashes with their father, King Mongkut (Yul Brynner). Her modern, Western ways don't sit well with the ruler - but over time, he slowly gains respect for her willingness to stand up to him. And eventually that respect deepens into love. Soon, Anna is the King's confidant, and his advisor in diplomatic relations with the West.
The film version of the popular Rodgers & Hammerstein Broadway play, The King and I was the winner of five Academy Awards® (Best Actor, Best Musical Score, Best Costume Design, Best Art Direction & Set Decoration and Best Sound), and was nominated for four more (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Cinematography).
