Commentary: 'Annie' and the Big Issues
Movies can do so much more than advertise products and give us a jolt of personal-fulfillment feel-goods. But not this one.In the corner of my home office, tucked safely away in her original box, is my American Girl doll, Molly. She's the World War 2 era American girl, the one who bravely faces down rations of food and fuel that interfere with Christmas celebration, marches door to door to collect scrap metal, and shares her birthday with a little girl whose refuge from war-torn London is Molly's American home. Like the other original American Girls, including Samantha and Addy, Molly manages to be a believable, lovable child while still participating meaningfully in the Big Issues facing her society in her day.The same could be said of the plucky, cheerful Annie as she's portrayed in the stage musical, later adapted into the beloved 1982 film starring Aileen Quinn in the title role. Annie's an appealing blend of tough and tender: the kind of girl who's unafraid to raise her fists to a gang of boys abusing a dog (or, for that matter, a bratty older girl who bullies the younger children in the orphanage) and also the first person you'd call when you woke up from an awful nightmare. She sings her earnestly optimistic song to FDR and convinces her emphatically Republican benefactor, Daddy Warbucks, to help Roosevelt out by bringing his organizational savvy to the New Deal.Daddy Warbucks is reimagined in the new Annie remake as William Stacks (Jamie Foxx) as a cell-phone mogul. He doesn't hold conferences with President; rather, Bloomberg-like, he himself aspires to political office as New York City mayor, locked in a tight race with a candidate who bears a slight resemblance to the late Ed Koch and who has taught in New York City public schools. That is where we first meet the new Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) as ...Continue reading...

Transgenderism in the News and Other Stories You Need to Know
A news summary on issues that matter.Christians continue to be martyred around the worldThe horrific scene is all too familiar: Christian men walking blindfolded across a beach, held by Islamic State militants.

This comes just days after Christians were thrown overboard on a ship, drowned at sea, “for praying to Jesus.”Please continue to pray for the persecuted Church around the world.The post Transgenderism in the News and Other Stories You Need to Know appeared first on Jim Daly.
Review: The Age of Adaline
Blake Lively turns in an exquisite performance. The plot, however . . . mpaa rating:PG-13 (For a suggestive comment.)Genre:Drama, RomanceDirected By: Lee Toland KriegerRun Time: 1 hour 50 minutes Cast: Blake Lively, Harrison Ford, Michiel Huisman, Amanda CrewTheatre Release:April 24, 2015 by LionsgateThe Age of Adaline is a bit like a student who hums along for three quarters of the semester doing “A” work and then totally bombs the final exam. She may have banked enough points to earn a passing grade, but somehow that “C+” feels more disappointing than does the “D” earned by her classmates who never really exerted themselves.Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) is a quiet, unassuming librarian with a fantastic secret. Born in 1908, widowed in her late twenties, she experienced an accident where something “almost magical” happened. As a result, she stopped aging. That the film realizes that any pseudo-scientific explanation it would offer for its magical realism will sound silly—and yet feels compelled to offer one anyway—might be the clearest indication that it doesn’t know what genre conventions it wants to use.The movie is best when it’s being an allegorical romance—much like Hawthorne’s short fiction. Allegories are less concerned with how a fantastic situation came about, more interested in what that situation reveals about human nature. Like fairy-tales, they are supposed to give us a sharper-than-usual focus through which we can look at the kinds of conflicts humans are always experiencing.Adaline’s dilemma, like the ones vampires created by Anne Rice or Stephanie Meyers experience, is that being a lonely immortal forces her to be physically withdrawn and emotionally isolated. Anyone she shares her life with might learn her secret. Her daughter must lie about her identity to forestall questions about Adaline’s frozen beauty. Even her dog, who’s supposed to give some sense of connection, grows old and threatens ...Continue reading...
