Today’s Screening: “Annie”

No matter what the beer distributors and limo drivers of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association say, honoring the young star with the title role with a nomination, I don’t have high hopes for this “Annie” updating. The original was creaky and hopelessly dated, but had a couple of good tunes and worked in its time.

How hip can you make Little Orphan Annie?

But we’ll see. Jamie Foxx et. al will do their best to bring it, and Ms. Wallis is a charmer.

    I ‘ll be interested in the reviews. The trailers for this thing looked atrocious!

    Loved Annie, so heart-warming, I really appreciated that you brought Daddy Warbucks up to date as well as the surrounding story line. Two thumbs up for little Quvenzhane Wallace and Jamie Foxx. Saw screening in San Jose, Ca 12/13/14. ~Linda
