Synopsis


Anne of Green Gables
Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel Anne of Green Gables, previously filmed in 1934, was afforded a TV-movie treatment in 1985. Megan Follows stars as 13-year-old Anne Shirley, an orphan girl sent to live with a foster family on Canada's Prince Edward Island. Though she has great difficulty controlling her temper, impulsiveness and vivid imagination, Anne eventually wins over her new guardians, domineering Marilla Cuthbert (Colleen Dewhurst) and Marilla's shy brother Matthew (Richard Farnsworth). Anne's secondary adventures concern her "bosom friend" Diana (Schuyler Grant) and her supposed enemy Gilbert Blythe (Jonathan Crombie). Anne of Green Gables was offered on American television as a 3-part presentation on PBS' Wonderworks; it aired from February 17 through March 3, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    I love this movie. I will readily admit to you that I am a 35 year old man, and I will repeat it: I love this movie. If you've read other reviews you know most everyone is raving about this movie as well. It truly is very entertaining for a person of almost any age. I gave it 4/5 stars simply for the image quality, it just leaves a lot to be desired. Also, it would have been nice to include 2 DVDs instead of a 2 sided DVD....not a big deal, but it would have been a little more professional looking in my opinion.

    This is a movie you will enjoy watching over and over. Anne Shirley's story is funny, sweet and very enjoyable. You feel like you have gone back in time as you watch her grow. I highly recommend Anne of Green Gables.
