G2G Movies Watch Annie Plot
Annie is directed by Will Gluck (Easy A) who also wrote the screenplay with Alice Brosh McKenna (We Bought a Zoo, The Devil Wears Prada) and Emma Thompson. Putting a modern spin on the classic musical, the film follows Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis), a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way in NYC in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back, it’s been a hard knock life living under mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) makes a thinly-veiled campaign move to take her in.
