This Week's Films: The King and I / Anna and the King
Cuisine: Thai

Synopsis: Two films, one a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, the other an epic drama, both tell the story of Anna Leonowens, an English tutor who travels to Siam to tutor the children of the king. But their two strong personalities clash until they learn that they must respect and accept each other’s cultures and traditions.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Thai recipe.
