Growing up, ANNIE was a favorite. Maybe because I understood that ‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’ really existed. Or maybe becausetomorrow really is a day a way. But I remember sitting in front of the TV watching a little girl’s dream come true, even if she thought it was temporary. Now that I have daughters with a very different childhood than I had, I am thrilled and excited to show them what ANNIE can teach them! This is the perfect feel good, family movie that can start a conversation and a smile among everyone!
I’ll admit, I had a lot on my plate the night that I loaded the screener to the laptop and set my kids up. I thought I would sort of watch and listen as it played. Turns out, I was right there with them, peering over the top of three little girls, drawn into the movie that show that you are never fully dressed without a smile. Truly impressed with the excitement, music and Sandy, of course, I didn’t move the entire time the movie was playing. Interestingly enough, my three kids did not either!
Honestly, an ANNIE fan my entire life, I did not expect to like the remake. But as I watched my girls smile and ask questions of ‘will she be OK?’ and make comments like, ‘How come no one taught her to read?’ , I give it credit for being a wonderful family movie that opened up the dialogue between my kids and I about everything from foster care to illiteracy to learning to trust someone again. I cannot wait for it to come out on Digital copy March 10 and on Blu-Ray Combo Pack March 17!
Pre-Order your copy of ANNIE now and curl up with your kids for this entertaining family movie. Let them learn that no matter how tough it seems, there are always people out there who will care about them, whether they are ‘birth’ family or not.
