Excellent family viewing. Megan Follows makes a very good Anne Shirley.
- Anne of Green Gables review by RP
When I was a boy I came across a box of books my mother had saved from her childhood. You know the kind of thing: horsey books, girl's boarding school adventures - and a copy of 'Anne Of Green Gables' by LM Montgomery. I read it and enjoyed it, although it's not a typical boy's book :)
Then I saw this made-for-TV version back in the 1980s, videotaped it and watched it many times with my children, and now I've watched it yet again on DVD.
It is of course saccharine sweet and yet told with a edge of childhood imagination and reality that captures much of the spirit of the books. Megan Follows is a good choice to play Anne Shirley and seems to encapsulate Anne's character as I imagined it.
Excellent family viewing. 4/5 stars.
