Anne of Green Gables

Director: Kevin Sullivan Year: 1985 Run Time: 199min

On turn-of-the-20th-century Prince Edward Island, siblings Matthew (Farnsworth) and Marilla Cuthbert (Dewhurst) decide to take in an orphaned boy to help them on their farm. Instead, they get freckle-faced, red-haired Anne Shirley (Follows). The stubborn and outspoken 11-year-old girl’s fiery spirit and imagination are sure to turn life upside down on the peaceful island, and add a lot of love into the Cuthberts’ lives.

So begins Anne of Green Gables, one of the most beloved stories in Canadian literature for readers of all ages. This mini-series adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s series of novels — one of the highest-rated broadcasts in Canadian television history — features Megan Follows in the title role, who has since gone on to become one of Canada’s most critically acclaimed actors.

This trophy-sweeping Genie Award-winner is a charming, family-friendly affair that is sure to delight.
