Mama Review: Just saw a sneak peek (12/13/14) premiere of the new 2014 Annie movie one week before the opening this Friday, December 19th. It's WORTH IT to go! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. Our 3 daughters and their friends LOVED it. Characters in the film keep checking on Annie, and she just keeps positive. I thought it would be cheesier, but it was genuine and sweet. ((I love that Sia's in the movie and was a part of the new songs, too))
Annie: Special Anniversary Edition (1982) Based on the Depression-era comic strip "Little Orphan Annie," this adaptation of the smash Broadway musical follows America's favorite urchin (Aileen Quinn) as she captures Daddy Warbucks's (Albert Finney) heart with her optimism -- and dodges the treacherous orphanage matron (Carol Burnett). Directed by John Huston, Annie features a soundtrack of familiar songs, including "Tomorrow" and "It's a Hard Knock Life."
