One of my favorite books, when I was a child, was Anne of Green Gables. There was just something magical about that period of time. Of course, there was also a television mini-series and several movies as well.

Anne Shirley is thirteen years old and finds that life in Avonlea is never simple. Anne’s bosom friendship with Diana Barry is put to the test when Anne begins to spend more time with Gilbert Blythe. And when Matthew’s health begins to slide, he implores Anne to keep it secret because he doesn’t want Marilla to worry. Anne struggles with her promise, but in the end, she confesses the truth to Marilla and must then wrestle with the burden of her betrayal to Matthew.

Torn between her free-spirited nature and her own perceived need to become sensible, Anne finds that the journey toward her goal is fraught with confusion and more than a few unfortunate yet amusing mishaps in L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables Th eGood Stars.

The program, written and directed by John Kent Harrison will once again star critically acclaimed actor Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, along with the return of Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley (“The Captiveâ€) and Sara Botsford (“E.N.G.â€) as Marilla Cuthbert.

Additional cast members include Julia Lalonde (“Catch a Christmas Starâ€) as Diana Barry, Kate Hennig (“Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gouldâ€) as Rachel Lynde, Stefani Kimber (“Rememberâ€) as Josie Pye, Drew Haytaoglu (“Looks Just Like the Sunâ€) as Gilbert Blythe, Kyle Gatehouse (“Source Codeâ€) as Mr. Phillips and Linda Kash (“Cinderella Manâ€) as Mrs. Barry.

My thoughts:

For those that enjoyed the book, you will want to see the movies as well. Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful role model who manages to be likable and fun. Her adventures are interesting and this movie should be enjoyed by everyone in the family.

It’s an adaptation so it doesn’t follow the book or the mini-series exactly but it still manages to capture Anne’s personality and spark for living. This movie would make a wonderful movie for family movie night. Buy it today.
