Annie – Official Trailer

Quvenzhané Wallis stars as Annie, 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 (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – 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.

Based on the bestselling book by multi award-winning author Tim Winton, The Turning’s linking and overlapping stories explore the extraordinary turning points in ordinary people’s lives in a stunning portrait of a small western Australian coastal community. As characters face second thoughts and regret, relationships irretrievably alter, resolves are made or broken, and lives change direction forever. With 18 separate filmmakers each taking on one of the stories in Winton’s book, each interlinking story is reimagined by some of Australia’s most talented film artists including David Wenham, Robert Connolly, Justin Kurzel, and Ian Meadows.

In addition, Mia Wasikowska contributes a striking directorial debut. Loosely centered on the character of Vic Lang and his family, The Turning walks through his youth, sexual awakening, parental issues, marriage, and depression. This portmanteau production features Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Miranda Otto, and Richard Roxburgh. Though each film embraces a different filmmaking style, the ingenious narrative links these stories about the extraordinary turning points in ordinary people’s lives over the course of 30 years. Destined to be a classic of Australian cinema, this watershed film is an experience to sink into.
