Based on Judith Kerr’s 1971 autobiographical novel, the film centers on nine-year-old Anna (Riva Krymalowski), who in 1933 has to flee the Nazis, leaving her favorite stuffed pink rabbit behind. The toy dominates Anna’s thoughts, as her family moves to Zurich and Paris, to finally land in London. Feeling the effects of tyranny, anti-semitism, displacement, and being a refugee, Anna somehow manages to keep her innocence and sense of adventure through it all. A Greenwich Entertainment release

An ideal film for families, not to mention fans of the book.”

Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post

A worthy adaptation… Balances the hardships and fear of being a refugee with the optimism of childhood.”
