Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Director Jon Blair (returning to familiar territory following 1982's Schindler) exercises integrity and restraint in the making of this difficult picture, a Best Documentary Feature Oscar winner. Kenneth Branagh's narration is straightforward, as are Glenn Close's off-camera readings from the now-famous diaries. Neither actors "perform" here; they're doing a job, and they do it with simple dignity.

No attempt is made to sensationalize the accounts of those whose lives touched Anne Frank's. The stories spoken by survivors and relatives (among them Anne's beloved father Otto, from an earlier interview) generate enough pain and drama for several movies. The video provides an emotional and educational experience that parents and their older children can share, but families may want to discuss beforehand what they know of the Holocaust, and the types of images the video is likely to show.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
