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 »

"Wilt thou give up thy garter, oh fairest of the fair"? Anne, nobody speaks that way. And look at that sap Percival who sits around mooning the entire time. He never lets a girl get a word in edgewise. In real life she'd have pitched him.

I have fallen in love with the entire Anne of Green Gables movies and books! All of the movies are my favorite in the world. My favorite actor in the movie was Jonathan Crombie. He is very talented and had the perfect qualifications to play Gilbert Blythe. Megan Follows made the perfect Anne as well. Every time I read the books, I visualize them as the real Anne and Gilbert. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes clean, wholesome movies with a little adventure mixed in with it. I would also recommend you to read the entire collection of Anne of Green Gables books. There not just for children. I'm 14 but I know adults that are obsessed with the story! This is a charming movie and I watch all of them again and again. So if you are a fan of mischief, adventure, and a little romance, watch this movie. You won't be disappointed!
