The Diary of Anne Frank

Our November movie is the classic film “The Diary of Anne Frank”. This will be a nice follow-up from Bill’s sermon on the Mallot Chapel windows.

With compelling performances by Shelly Winters, Ed Wynn, Richard Jacoby the film is a gripping and heart-rending story. Following the Nazi invasion of Amsterdam, 13-year-old Anne and her family go into hiding in the confines of an attic. This is a remarkable account of their lives, their growing fear of discovery, their deplorable living conditions, and even the blooming of her first love, which are intimately depicted in this extraordinary portrait of humanity. Nominated for eight 1959 Oscars and winning three, “The Diary of Anne Frank” remains one of the cinema’s most astounding and enduring treasures.

This film will remind us how much we can be grateful during this time of Thanksgiving.
