The interpretation is so uterly bad I couldn't even get to the end. Everything seems to be monochrome without any excitement although the book gets you excited every time you read it.
It is a cute story with a charming Anne. It is always good to see Martin Sheen in a movie. This version is like the Las Vegas Night Club Version: Anne loses the brooch, Marilla finds the brooch, move on. Anne gets Diana drunk, Anne saves Dianas's sister from dying of the croupe; NEXT? It is for people who want to hear the story but have a short attention span. Nothing is allowed to develop before they are on to the next plot point.
This was tragically bad. Bad dye job, fake freckles, and stilted, insincere "acting". I imagine it is especially appalling to all of us who have read the book.
They certainly did pack quite a bit into this 90 minute retelling of Anne of Green Gables. Ella Ballentine did a great job as Anne, but she can't really hold a candle to Megan Follows; Megan will always be the benchmark to anyone portraying Anne Shirley.
Do yourself a favor - skip this remake & carve yourself out a block of time to watch the original mini-series done in 1985.
None of the actors seemed right for their characters and they changed the story too much. It doesn't hold a candle to the Kevin Sulllivan version.
Stick to the original
Sorry, but not even Martin Sheen can make up for the rest of this lackluster cast, and especially the mediocre or less performance of the main character. The definitive series with Megan Fellowes was FAR Superior to this just barely fair rendition of the story.
just awful. they talked so fast mind you everything seems so rushed.
Terrible retelling. Awful cast, rushed script and poor cinematography. Most of the performances are cringeworthy and annoying. Nothing to do with the endearing 1985 version
