Young Anne Frank did not survive the horrors of World War II, but her words, contained in a remarkable diary, did. Wendy Kesselman's unflinching adaptation of the Goodrich and Hackett classic sheds new light on Anne and her fellow refugees, revealing them in all their humanity. Their daily struggle with the fear of being discovered and the harshness and close quarters of life in the cramped attic they called the Annex are poignantly illuminated by Anne's coming-of-age experiences--her animosity toward her mother, her budding sexuality, her determination to be someone in the world. This story, rescued from the Holocaust, has inspired generations. James Edmondson directs.
