Anna and the King

This movie was spectacular, and very sad. Why is it that all extremely beautiful movies are so sad? I would put this with other movies: Kundun, Elizabeth, Ghandi and Hilary & Jackie. Pick the theme there... The acting was superb, the costumes exquisite. I feel a new costuming effort coming on, that doesn't require crazy makeup. The music didn't stick with me, it was upstaged by the imagery and story. The Thailand government does not endorse this movie as it is historically inaccurate, but it is still beautiful.
