Annie is a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around. Written by

In late 2014, Charles Strouse (the composer of the original musical's score) gave an interview to Vanity Fair in which he talked about what he liked and didn't like about this movie adaptation. One thing he didn't like was the fact that although Jay Z did consult Strouse in the initial stages of conceiving the remake, and though Strouse said he "was paid handsomely for my share of the rights," Strouse and the other original creators of the musical did not get to revise and update their own songs or write any of the new songs in the movie. Something Strouse did enthusiastically endorse about this movie version was the casting of Quvenzhané Wallis in the lead role (he called her performance "amazing") and, more generally, the idea of casting nonwhite actresses in the role--something he said he had been lobbying for since the first Broadway run of the show back in the 1970s.

I thought it was a great movie. I grew up watching the old Annie and I loved this one just as much. The original Annie made you feel happy for Annie and Mr Warbuck but this Annie made you feel good about yourself and your family. I thought the new songs were catchy and enjoyable. The only bad thing I can see was that Cameron Diaz's acting was a bit over exaggerated but besides that, it was great. I had no problem at all with the actors being black, in fact, I didn't even think about it until I came on here and read the disgusting comments. All the people that grew up with the old Annie and are hating on this one need to stop because this is an updated version on the story that was made for the next generation. Just think of the poor little girls in the movie reading your disgusting comments.
