Annie (1982 and 2014)

Before Monday, I had only seen the first Annie movie, and I think I had only watched it once.  I was never really interested in it.  However, watching it again showed me how mature the themes are.  With Mrs. Hannigan drinking all the time and the idea that someone would lie about being Annie’s parents for money, the movie literally is about “The Hard Knock Life.” The new version was very interesting to me because it did have the diverse characters and it was set in modern day. I thought it was nice that children could see how the story would be set in this time to make it more “relatable.”
