‘Annie’ Still a Hit for All Ages

Annie.jpgThe story of Annie has continued to warm the hearts through the decades, since Harold Gray created the comic strip “Little Orphan Annie” in 1894. The sons from the musical version, Annie, which hit movie theaters in 1982, seem to be as enduring – “Tomorrow” is eternal. Take seven-year-old KIDS FIRST! film critic Ny’Asia Bell’s review to your heart, and plan to tune in to HDNet Movies on July 11 and even sing along.

Annie
Reviewed by Ny’Asia Bell

Today I will be reviewing one of my favorite movie musicals – the original classic Annie.

This movie is about a cute optimistic little orphan named Annie, played by Aileen Quinn, who gets lucky and is chosen to spend the week with Oliver Warbucks, the billionaire, played by Albert Finney. Only he does not like her and wants to trade her in for a little boy. His private secretary, Grace, played by Ann Reinking, persuades him to let her stay. While there, she softens him up, and opens his eyes to see things in a different way. Mr. Warbucks wants to adopt Annie, but she does not want to be adopted, and wants to find her biological parents. So he agrees to help her. Does she find her biological parents or does he adopt her? Find out for yourself.
 
My favorite part is when Annie rescues Sandy from the boys in the alley. I thought that was hilarious.
 
My favorite character has to be Annie, because even though she was an orphan she still remained hopeful.NyAsiaBell_forweb.jpg
 
Annie is one of many film classics being brought to your home by HDNET movies on Kid Scene, a morning and Friday night programming block specifically for kids and families.
 
I rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars because it is fun and entertaining. I recommend this movie to everyone because it is definitely family oriented.
