ESI Distribution LTD. A New Beginning: Anne of Green Gables

Kindred spirits, rejoice---our heroine is back! Visiting Prince Edward Island in 1945, Anne---now a successful middle-aged author---agrees to write a play for a friend. But the real drama begins when she discovers a letter from her errant father---and unearths long-buried memories from her childhood. Stars Shirley MacLaine, Hannah Endicott-Douglas, and Barbara Hershey. Dove approved. (G.) Approx. 2.5 hours.

This was an odd sort of sequel/prequel, telling the supposed "back story" of Anne of Green Gables. I found it convuluted and rather sadly depressing; it droned on and on, and I actually fell asleep before it ended, something I never could imagine doing with the amazing Anne series. It was really a letdown, and was too expensive for such a poor showing.

Enjoyed all of the Anne of Green Gables series with my grandchildren. Even the parents sat with us as we watched.

I enjoyed this movie very much. I do think that the Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea were the best of this series of stories, but this was also worth watching and I'm glad to have in my collection!
