Anne of Green Gables was one of my childhood favorites when it comes to books. With so many different ways to take in this classic, from movies to series, and of course, the books, you really can’t go wrong. But with Martin Sheen returning to Prince Edward Island as Matthew Cuthbert and Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley, you can expect great things!
The second installment of the classic best-selling Lucy Maud Montgomery story of a free-spirited teenager on Prince Edward Island returns after the successful Thanksgiving 2016 premiere, which reached more than 3.2 million viewers.
In this installment, Anne Shirley turns 13 and faces complex situations with friends, learns from inspirational adults, and experiences an escalating friendship with Gilbert. Her free-spirited nature is challenged by her perceived need to be sensible, a journey fraught with confusion and some unfortunate — albeit amusing — mishaps.
Anne of Green Gables the Good Stars Review
My kids were really excited when I told them we had received a copy of Anne of Green Gables to watch and review. They had been introduced to the title in school and were eager to watch. After we all enjoyed a little family movie night, they told me they really liked it and that it is a good story.
Then my daughter, who is quite the bookworm, proceeded to tell me all the things she knows about Anne and how some of the things in the movie weren’t exactly the same — a chip right off the old block. 🙂
The movie is a really enjoyable watch and makes a fantastic choice for family movie night. I do recommend it to anyone looking for a goodhearted movie the whole family can enjoy.
Thanks to PBS distribution for providing me a copy of Anne of Green Gables The Good Stars for review. Opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links that help support this site and my family.
