In this astounding movie, The Diary of Anne Frank, Anne tells firsthand how her Jewish family and their dangerous journey while hiding from the Nazi's in Amsterdam

I've always heard fascinating rumors about Anne Frank and her life living during the Holocaust but I never really found the strength to pick up her book and read her firsthand knowledge about what really happened and what it was like living under bombs. When I found there was a movie on Netflix about her that was young adult friendly, I was more than interested to watch the movie.

Director Jon Jones intends for this movie to inform young audiences about the headstrong young lady, Anne, played by Ellie Kendrick and her struggles and emotions while living in a Dutch underground with more than just her family, while still obtaining the feeling and normality of a regular teenage girl.

After receiving a diary for her birthday Anne is constantly writing all her thoughts and feelings about her now not normal life after finding out that they must go into hiding due to business with her father Otto, played by Iain Glen. With the help from Miep Gies who helps the family hide, Anne's curiosity about the outside world astonishes her and leads her to find out new things about her self and her body. This sassy teenager will not be pushed around and is not afraid to make sure things are fair even if she gets punished.

This film had me at the edge of my seat and I was anxious to see whats happened next. This movie is great for younger audiences and it has an accurate portrayal of what life was like in hiding. Anne will bring our your curious side and you will connect with her as she unravels the truths of the heart.

A nice adaption of Anne Frank's diary

''The Diary of Anne'' (2009) is an accurate adaption of Anne Frank's diary. It's a very nice movie. I am very much interested about Anne Frank and I've seen six movies about Anne Frank. The 2009 adaption of Anne's diary is a fine one. Although it is not as excellent as ''Anne Frank: The Whole Story'' (2001), it is a very moving miniseries and can give the audience a clear idea about Anne Frank. The casting was excellent. Ellie Kendrick- I have no words to describe her- gave an amazing performance as Anne Frank. Really, Ellie is a talented young actress. I'd also like to praise the performances of Felicity Jones who played Margot Frank, Geoff Breton who played Peter van Daan and Tamsin Greig who played Edith Hollander Frank. And Nicholas Ferrell, who played Albert Dussel, also gave a wonderful performance. Lesley Sharp who played Petronella van Daan and Kate Ashfield who played Miep Gies also gave wonderful performances. The casting was, in short, excellent. The story was also arranged in such a way that we liked the movie very much. But I'd like to say that ''Anne Frank: The Whole Story'' and ''The Attic: The Hiding of Anne Frank'' were better than ''The Diary of Anne Frank'' (2009), but still, the 2009 adaption was indeed a nice one and I liked it. I'd like to give the movie: 7 out of 10.

A Powerful Take on a Powerful Story

This was just broadcast in one go, the original episodic partitions merged into one showing as part of the Masterpiece series on PBS. I didn't actually get to see the whole thing, coming upon it as I did part way through. At first I did not know what it was about, but something quickly seemed compelling and it wasn't long before the story became evident to me. Then I stayed up much too late, unable to turn away.

If you don't know the story, read the book first. If you do then you don't need me to tell you what it is about. But concerning this production, it blew me away. It is beautifully crafted and sensitively acted. The character of Anne and her interaction with those around her during a truly bizarre time is disarming and haunting. My big plasma screen may have helped, but it was the nature of the production and the intensity of the story that really pulled me in, making me feel I was in the same space with them, as a silent observer to the ups and the downs, the warmth and the tension, the joy and the anger, the hope and the fear.

The ending was a nice touch. Everyone was accounted for. I could feel a sense of grief and a sense of closure, knowing the aftermath of what Anne was able to record.
