Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis shines in this delightful update of the much-loved family musical.
Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) is a streetwise, happy-go-lucky little girl. She lives in New York with foster mum Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz), whose nastiness is unable to dent our lovable heroine's sunny disposition. Annie's life changes when vain, super-rich tycoon and mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) saves her from being hit by an oncoming van. When news of this heroic deed breaks, Stacks's poll rating jumps. So his clever VP, Grace (Rose Byrne), and slick, scheming campaign advisor Guy (Bobby Cannavale) advise him to take Annie in. But what he doesn't expect is that she will also make him a better man! This is a wonderful contemporary reworking of the great Broadway musical that has entertained generations. Luminous child star Quvenzhane Wallis, who was Oscar nominated for her performance in 'Beasts of the Southern Wild', makes a thoroughly modern Annie.
