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

Maybe you don't think I'm good enough for you now, but I will be someday.
No, Gil you're a great deal too good for me. But you want someone who'll adore you. Someone who'll be happy just to hang on your arm and build a home for you. I wouldn't.
Anne, that's not what I'm looking for at all.
We'll end up like two old crows fighting all the time. I know I'd be unhappy and I'd wish we'd never done it.

No matter what people say, the movie did stick to the book most of the time. I couldn't believe that Anne, if for only 5 seconds, could even have thought of marrying Morgan Harris (Anne Harris???? Yuck!).I think it would have been nicer to have Roy Gardner instead of Morgan. Then it might have satisfied more people. If you watch it as 'Anne: The Sequel' and not 'Anne of Avonlea' it makes more sense, because Anne is hardly in Avonlea at all. It positively broke my heart when Gilbert told Anne he was engaged to Christine Boyfriend-Stealer Stuart, and gave her that letter that said 'congratulations on your success, Carrots'. When Anne went to see Gilbert when he was dying and she had her hair all tumbling down I thought it looked much nicer than that weird hairdo she wears elsewhere. I knew Gil would be OK because I've read the books, but it still made my heart melt like chocolate on a warm day. That is truly the mark of a great movie - even when you know what's going to happen it still touches you. (Another example is the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe film) It might have been nice to see more of Christine Boyfriend-Stealer Stuart because it didn't really seem like her and Gil were in love (unless it was Christine Boyfriend-Stealer Stuart that was helping Gil with his work in the first movie?). Gr8 movie, 10/10. Oh yeah - and I totally agree with Anne that a K is far nicer than a C in the name Katherine.
