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

During the class after Anne, Emiline and Essie break into the shed, Anne walks into the room and we see a rude drawing of her on the board. As the shots of the giggling class are shown you can see that Jen Pringle is at her usual desk. However, minutes later, we see that her desk is empty as she walks into the classroom apparently late for class, on purpose. See more »
It's really tough to try to follow up a movie as spectacular and perfect as the first "Anne of Green Gables." However, as a purist, I must admit that the books were written as a series, and this is a necessary part of the story. And the film is well done. What's hard for real Anne fans to deal with in this movie is that it involves Anne moving past Avonlea. We all love Anne so much because, like her, we don't really want anything to change. We want to be Lost Children on our own island paradise forever, and once Anne grows up, we're forced to admit that we have too. This movie's actually pretty good -- and if I weren't complaining about my lost childhood, I'd be complaining that they never made a sequel. Overall I give this one a thumbs-up.
