"Anyone who thinks that Hannah Taylor-Gordon's portrayal of Anne Frank was the ultimate, should see this movie. Katharine Schlesinger, to me, was perfect as Anne, both in looks, and acting. This Anne was so well written. You really get a chance to see all sides of her. The entire performance is great. The writing, sets, and acting were first rate, and I think it's every bit as good as the Taylor-Gordon version."
