Storyline

In the depths of the 1930's, Annie is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver Warbucks. Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward if they would come to him and prove their identity. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil brother, Rooster, and a female accomplice, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves which put Annie in great danger.

Child's Film
1 October 2003 | by (phoenix, az) – See all my reviews

Annie is a wonderful movie. It's great for children, particularly young girls. I have been watching the film since I was very small, and I have worn out five VHS copies to boot. Ergo I, as a young child, and still do now that I'm older, for reasons all my own, enjoyed this movie. This movie is superb for young children, and that's how it should be viewed, not as how poor the direction was, because most kids don't even know what a director does. See the film through a childs eyes, better yet, your childs eyes, and they will love it. Plus, it always keeps my cousins relatively quite (they like to sing) for two hours.
