The synopsis for Annie says, “Academy Award® nominee 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].”

Annie trailer:

“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.”

The synopsis for Black or White says, “Black or White is the story of a grandfather [Kevin Costner] who is suddenly left to care for his beloved granddaughter.”

Black or White trailer:

“When her paternal grandmother [Octavia Spencer] seeks custody with the help of her brother [Anthony Mackie], the little girl is torn between two families who love her deeply. With the best intentions at heart, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding.

“Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white.”
