The enchanting sequel to the Anne of Green Gables, Anne Shirley makes the transition from a romantic, impetuous orphan to an outspoken, adventurous and accomplished young teacher. Canadian actress Megan Follows returns to her role as Anne. Colleen Dewhurst stars opposite her as aging Marilla Cuthbert and actress Dame Wendy Hiller appears as the prickly, dowager Mrs. Harris. An emotional follow-up full of wit and charm to the epic tale of the beguiling red-head.

I watched this saccharine-sweet, lengthy (it was originally a TV mini-series) film with three girls (two young teens + 7 year old) who gave their verdict: "It's *so* good." And it is, it really is.
It's a concatenation of several of the 'Anne Of Green Gables' books by Canadian author LM Montgomery. The film takes the story of Anne through further adventures in Avonlea, her studies to become a teacher, and teaching in a boarding school for posh young ladies, where she manages to win over her many opponents. And Megan Follows really does make an excellent 'Anne'.
Now I've promised my group of girls that I'd order up the next set of DVDs...
