PBS Masterpiece Anne Frank
For Jewish teenager Anne Frank (Ellie Kendrick), her diary is her one true friend and confidant. In it, she records the thoughts of a typical teen — only set against a backdrop of encroaching evil in Amsterdam during World War II. Stowed away behind a bookcase in a secret annex with her family and others to flee the Nazis, Anne experiences her time in hiding as an adventure. Drawing on Anne Frank’s own words in the most accurate-ever adaptation of the revered memoir, Masterpiece presents The Diary of Anne Frank.
