Brief Synopsis: "Annie is a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - 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, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around."

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - What I do believe is the powers that be over Will and Jay, said don't make it too "black" it is Annie after all. If the two main characters are African American, then you need to hire a white director, we don't want to loose the original "Annie" audience. Which is fine. I certainly am not looking for any ghetto Annie or "playa" Daddy Warbucks, but I wouldn't have minded just a bit more hip hop edge to the music. They updated the arrangements of the original songs a little and added some likeable new tunes, but the soundtrack is left feeling kinda beige.
