This past Friday was the release of the new movie Annie starring Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhane Wallis, and Cameron Diaz. I attended the red carpet premiere party and Q&A session hosted by AMC Theaters for the family and friends for the actors. The turnout was amazing and you could see all of the dedication put into this movie. Since I am far from a movie critic, I am not going to spoil it and tell you the whole plot line and spoilers as I really think anyone would enjoy watching this movie. There is no way I expected it to be like the classic Annie as it is a contemporary twist and that is why I found it so special.
Annie is back and more clever than before living in a new era in Harlem as she patiently awaits to find her birth parents. The plot is nothing but heartwarming and hilarious, especially with Cameron Diaz who took her role to the next level of laughs! Also, Jamie and Quvenzhane was such a fabulous duo together. All of our favorite Annie songs are featured in the movie and the actors truly had the triple-threat talent for their roles. The whole 118 minutes is pieced together so creatively and inspiring with the modern "sun will come out tomorrow" theme.
I hope you get a chance to swing by your theater and check out Annie at some point during your holiday break! Let me know if you do and what you think...xo
