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

I have always liked this movie...
26 June 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I've liked it and have always seen it as just a continuation of "Green Gables". After I read the books and then watched the movies again, I realized how much they changed it, leaving things out and making things all out of sequence.

I do like this movie, and without the books, it'd be a very good story on it's own. But it would've been nice if they'd stayed truer to the story and left a few more things in.
