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.

However when the High Brahmin, who is also in love with the dancer, overhears them, he rushes to reveal their secret to the Rajah. Marius Petipa’s choreography, here in a new scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, is exquisite.
