Writer/director Stuart Murdoch's "God Help the Girl" has as sweet a heart as its protagonist Eve does.

Not a dry eye in the house

The story of Anne Frank is one known the world over. A young girl and her older sister and parents, and four others, escaped the Nazi persecution of the Jews by hiding in the attic of an office building (Anne’s “Secret Annex”) in Amsterdam for slightly more than two years before being captured and sent to various concentration camps where all but one (perhaps two) of them died.
