Graceful, sensitive story of another time.

Common Sense Media

A childhood classic that any adult can thoroughly appreciate. Inspiring, hopeful, funny, and utterly charming. Possibly the best miniseries ever produced for television.

Audience Reviews for Anne of Green Gables

The main character is so insufferable and pig headed at times its hard to warm to her. Beautiful looking version of the story with veterans Dewhurst and Farnsworth outstanding in support.
