‘Annie’ is November's free Film of Character


To highlight this month’s character of “thankfulness,” the Community of Character Committee will host a special screening of the 2014 adaptation of the 1982 film “Annie” on Sunday, November 21.

The free screening begins at 1:15 pm in the Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center.

The movie follows a fiery young orphan girl named Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Agatha Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of a wealthy mayoral candidate, Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx). Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Stacks 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 Agatha Hannigan and Stacks’ evil campaign manager played by Bobby Cannavale, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves, which puts Annie in danger.

A brief discussion follows the movie, which will be shown on a theater-size screen with theater-style seating and surround-sound.
