“Annie”. . . . . the Film

 

The area grandchildren and I went to see” Annie,” this morning.  On Tuesdays, throughout the summer kid friendly films are run with a $1 per person admission.  I had wanted to see the new version of this classic.  Jamie Foxx was a more modern Daddy War-bucks  character. Instead of a house full of servants, his penthouse is filled with technology that any man who sees  would love to have.   But it is  a believable , lovable, plucky , cheerful Annie, Quventshane Wallis who steals the show.  She has lived an opposite life to the one  she sang of in  the  hope and optimism of “Tomorrow.”  In the film , she is met with disappointment and endures as the smart kid she is, though your heart will sink with her disappointment.

This film came out at Christmas at the end of a very hard year for our country, with many of those problems enduring into 2015. This  “Annie” feels current with topics such as poverty, foster care, even alcoholism,   multiculturalism musical arrangements.   But life was met  and understood through  reinvention, striving, survival and the importance of dreams,

I cried!

This Is a Fun Summer Film for  Both Children and Adults !
