This is not a video, just a pic from PBS.org
This is going to be a non-bookish post. Also, I wanted to give forewarning that I will be posting a lot in the next few days as I have a back log of reviews and an author interview coming up...plus Mailbox Monday.
So...I had to post about last night's Masterpiece Classic adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank. One of my favorite books from childhood, this wonderful adaptation really took me back to the story all over again. It was very well-acted and I think it is probably the best movie version of the story I have seen. Of course, we all know what happens in the end, but that still did not stop me from breaking down in tears while watching the families being marched out by the SS and reading the captions of their fate. Anne had such an undeniable spirit. It is a great tragedy that her life was cut short and in such a terrible way.
If you didn't get to watch it, there are encore presentations (check your local listings) or you can watch it online at the PBS page for the movie. Click the link and it will take you to the site for more information on the program.
