Storyline

Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich, bachelor, chases a cow, and wins (to her chagrin) a baking soda company's writing contest. She acts as Diana's maid of honor, and refuses Gilbert Blythe's marriage proposal; which sends her to teach Kingsport Ladies' College, an exclusive girls school, where she meets opposition from one of the teachers, Miss Brooke, and the Pringle clan (one of whom is the rich, handsome bachelor). But while Anne enjoys the battle, and the friends she makes, she returns to Avonlea. Written by Kathy Li

Why?
3 January 2001 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

I don't really understand the unsatisfaction. You had better blame him because of Anne 3. Poor Megan not even looks older than Anne could have been in 1915 and in 1919, but looks older than herSELF, also. She misses proper make-up first of all, proper lights during filming (2 or 3 scenes are only perfect) and last but not least good sentences. (Just see the page of memorable sentences! The first two parts have dozens, it only has three of them!) The story, well, it's even worse. So I must say, wether Anne 2 is true to the novels or not, it is a whole, compact story and is NOT boring, this sequel is only his own interpretation. After all, we've been waiting for the very last scene since Gilbert first called her 'Carrots'! Could you wait months for that moment? So I ask you: isn't that what we wanted?
