“Annie” – the brand new live action musical movie starring Jamie Fox and Cameron Diaz is one of the best musicals of 2014. It is better than the original movie “Annie”. The stars, music, songs and the storyline of the new version are super and fantastic!!! All the Stewart Home School students got to go see the new version on September 3. They all lived it and cheered for Annie all the way through the movie. It starts out when a business tycoon and mayoral candidate Benjamin Stacks launches a campaign to take in Annie, a young girl who is ten years old and can’t read and who has been living with her mean foster mother, Miss Hannigan since her parents left her as a baby. I give this movie 5 stars.
