"A story to warm your heart. Great for pre-teen girls especially"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Memorable characters abound in a story that is perfectly acted and portrayed. Lovely scenery and great adventures, and with good messages for any young person. 3 hours all up, so get the popcorn, or split into 3 nights.

"I bought Anne of Green Gables"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was thrilled to find that I could buy Anne of Green Gables from you. I have two grandaughters aged 14 and 15 years (cousins). I bought them a copy each for them to keep as a classic DVD. The hardest part was to get them just to look at it – but my devious way was to watch it myself at Christmas time when I knew they would be into see me. They sat down for a while and YES! they were hooked. Thrilled to bits with Anne of Green Gables. One girl even invited a friend over to sleep so she could see it. I must say too, that I thoroughly enjoy watching it – hear something more everytime I watch. It's a real classic and so enjoyable for all to watch. The girls mothers are so enjoying the DVD too. Pollyanna is also a classic DVD – I bought this to have in our library of DVD's for when children come to visit. Enjoyed very much by all age groups as well. Gran.

Description

Megan Follows, Tony Award winner Colleen Dewhurst (A Moon for the Misbegotten, Annie Hall) and Academy Award nominee Richard Farnsworth (Comes A Horseman, The Grey Fox, The Natural) give unparalled performances in this critically acclaimed motion picture based on the international best-selling novel.

Filmed amidst the spectacular scenery of Prince Edward Island, Canada, this award-winning movie follows the enchanting life of orphan Anne Shirley (Follows), from her struggles as an adolescent to her triumphs as a young woman. A delicate epic full of wit, style and emotional power.

Review

This gorgeous adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's story is well worth watching with the whole family. Produced for Canadian television, it's one of those rare productions that actually sticks to the book and even enhances it through first-rate performances and an excellent script. Set on bucolic Prince Edward Island in the late 19th century, Anne of Green Gables is the story of Anne Shirley, an imaginative and headstrong orphan. When brother and sister Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert decide to adopt an orphan boy to help Matthew work the farm, they are astonished when Anne arrives at the train station by mistake. "What use is she to us?" grumbles the gruff Marilla. "We might be of some use to her," answers Matthew, who has taken an instant liking to the talkative Anne. As Anne grows up, her adventures are both hilarious and moving. It's a delight to watch as she forms a friendship with the beautiful Diana and her admirer--the dashing Gilbert Blythe--then dyes her hair green, cracks a slate over Gilbert's head when he calls her "Carrots," and finds a sympathetic teacher who encourages her to attend college. Richard Farnsworth is perfect as the shy and gentle bachelor Matthew, who confides to Anne that he never went courting because "I would have had to say something." Colleen Dewhurst delivers a nuanced and powerful performance as Marilla, a seemingly cold-hearted spinster whose no-nonsense exterior conceals a warm heart. And as Anne, Megan Follows strikes the perfect note, maturing from freckle-faced orphan to elegant and poised young woman. --Elisabeth Keating
