Although Annie was abandoned at the age of four, she still believes that one day her parents will return for her.
Then on the other side of the city, there is Will Stacks a billionaire who is running a campaign for mayor of New York City.
After an accidental meeting between Mr Stacks and Annie their life's transform forever.
I also recently watched the original Annie but I enjoyed this latest Annie much better, the new Annie was easier for me to understand and the music was much better.
The movie is sad and funny. It has so many songs which made me really enjoy the movie.
Mum's Big Opinion: I really enjoyed this movie from the first scene, which introduced the new Annie to the very last song and dance scene.
The movie is a remake of the original Annie movie and it loosely follows the original storyline but it was great to see it modernised for 2014.
The movie rarely goes 10 minutes without someone breaking into a song or dance.
I cannot fault the cast and I thought Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan the foster parent was absolutely brilliant.
The movie had me laughing, singing, bopping in my seat and also crying.
This is one not to miss and I would recommend checking it out.
However I didn't take my 5 year old, I think she would of had trouble following the storyline ( although I am sure she would of enjoyed the singing) its definitely a movie for the older kids.
