Storyline

Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich, bachelor, (jumping to a wrong conclusion, she and Diana chased down Rachel Lynde's cow, thinking it was Dolly) & immediately sold it to John Blythe. [When she realizes her fault, Anne & Marilla do a special visit to Rachel Lynde & her longtime husband, Thomas. During this visit, Thomas Lynde dies & Rachel Lynde became a widow!] and wins (to her chagrin) Rolling's Reliable baking soda (that was forged by Diana) 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 all girl students' school, where she meets opposition from the principal, Miss Katherine Brooke, and the Pringle clan (one of whom is the rich, handsome bachelor). But while Anne won the numerous conflicts & battles, and the friends she makes, she returns to Avonlea. Written by Kathy Li

Trivia

While shooting the scene where Anne says goodbye to Marilla and Rachel before she leaves for Kingsport, Colleen Dewhurst was wearing jeans under her dress because she had to catch a plane in an hour. See more »

Goofs

During Anne's first class at Kingsport we see Emmeline Harris leave the room to take Essie to the ladies room. However, we see her sitting at her desk as Jen Pringle returns to her desk after she receives the strap. Moments later after the bell rings we see Emmeline and Essie have re-entered the class, almost as if Jen's snake and the mayhem it caused was deleted. See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Harris: Yes, he was the handsomest man in Kingsport. And he adored me. We consulted each other about absolutely everything. Mind you, we didn't always agree. No. He had his fits of temper. Oh, yes. And so did I.
[laughs]
Mrs. Harris: Do you know what he did when I bought a daycap he didn't like?
Anne Shirley: I can't imagine.
Mrs. Harris: He ate it. It gave him a terrible stomach pain. Yes, serves him right. He was so irked that I had neglected to consult him.
[laughs/cries]
Mrs. Harris: How could he go away and leave me alone and crippled like this? Dying...

Just as good as the first movie!
29 January 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is superb: funny, romantic, adventurous and beautiful! It doesn't hold true to the books as much as the first movie (not very much, in fact), but it is still very enjoyable and delightful to watch!

Anne of Avonlea has a very touching ending as well.
