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
Though the American title is "Anne of Avonlea", it is only partially based on that Lucy Maud Montgomery book (second in the series), and is in fact based on parts from books 2-4 in the series (out of 8). This was because Kevin Sullivan thought there wasn't "enough dramatic material for a film" in the sequel "Anne of Avonlea" alone. See more »

It's the overparticular ones that get left behind.
And it's the over-opinionated ones that end up unhappy and meaner than second skimmings.

I have to say that this is one sequel that is just as terrific, if not more so, than the original! Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst and Jonathan Crombie are excellent again as Anne, Marilla, and Gilbert. The entire supporting cast is wonderful as well. The story is so romantic, exciting, and absorbing, and the scenery and costumes are breathtaking. There are plenty of laughs in this movie too. Every girl should see the "Anne" movies. I can't wait for the next one!
