At last, this stunning ABC mini series is coming to video! (I am ordering mine as soon as I finish writing this review!). At last we can see the full story, from before the diary and after, and it's everything we could imagine! Hannah Taylor-Gordon plays Anne. After a pain-staking casting search, the requirements that the actress should bear a clear resemblance to the real girl and have a solid acting style were clearly found in Gordon. She is truly the epitome of what we envision Anne to be. Rounding out the cast are Ben Kingsley as Otto Frank, Tatjana Blacher as Edith Frank, Brenda Blethyn as Auguste van Pels and Lili Taylor as Miep Gies. Filmed on location in Prague, the entire production is flawless and is based on Melissa Muller's book on Anne, not on the actual diary itself. If you love the story of Anne, you will love this new mini series. Your heart will sing, soar and break.
