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).

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!
