Movie Info

At once a sequel and a prequel to the life of Anne of Green Gables' Anne Shirley, this drama features a cast led by Barbara Hershey and Shirley MacLaine. With her legendary imagination, it's little surprise that an adult Anne Shirley (Hershey) is making a living as a writer. A return to Prince Edward Island brings her work as a playwright, a welcome distraction from worrying about her son who hasn't returned from World War II yet. However, when she decides to sell Green Gables, she uncovers a letter from her father. Though she told everyone she was an orphan, her father was actually alive and abandoned her as a child. A rich woman (MacLaine) and her daughter-in-law (Rachel Blanchard) become Anne's caretakers, and she begins a journey that will turn her into the Anne that readers and audiences have loved for decades. ~ Kimber Myers, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning

While not the best, most faithful adaption of Anne, it captures some of the heart of the original tale. Any book lovers will recognize revamped scenes from the novel, and will be furious at Sullivan for creating a fictional account of Anne's father, Walter Shirley. The movie was charming without being wonderful.
