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

Jonathan Crombie is very convincing!
27 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

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!
