Celebrity Sightings In New York City - December 2, 2013

ANNIE

119 min | PG
Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis (BEATS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. It’s been a hard knock life ever since her parents left her with mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) makes a thinly–veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self–assured nature and bright outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

WILD

Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon, director Jean-Marc Vallee (DALLAS BUYERS CLUB), and screenwriter Nick Hornby (AN EDUCATION) bring bestselling author Cheryl Strayed’s extraordinary adventure to the screen in WILD. After years of reckless behavior, a heroin addiction, and the destruction of her marriage, Strayed makes a rash decision. Haunted by memories of her mother (Oscar nominee Laura Dern) and with absolutely no experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail all on her own. As Strayed forges ahead on her rugged and emotional journey, the wild landscape maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.

Hilary Swank gives a brave, full-blooded performance as a fiercely independent pioneer woman in THE HOMESMAN. Based on the novel by Glendon Swarthout and directed by Tommy Lee Jones (following his critical-favorite debut THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA), this unique Western begins as three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by pioneer life. The pious and determined Mary Bee Cuddy agrees to transport the woman back East, employing a local outlaw (Jones) to assist her as they traverse the harsh Nebraska Territories marked by stark beauty, psychological peril, and constant threat.
