Anne of Green Gables tells a series of events in the life of Anne, an orphan that is sent away from her adoption family after being blamed for the death of an old coot. No matter what she tries to accomplish, it seems she can't do it without a foul up. This movie is around the three hour range in length, but once you've seen it you will understand that time flies when your having fun! After she is dumped at the orphanage, the head mistress hears about an elderly couple that lives on Prince Edward Island in a town called Avonlea. They want to adopt a child and she thinks that Anne would be perfect for them. Anne keeps herself company until she leaves by talking to her reflection, her "Window Friend" Katie. After she arrives on P.E.I. she melts the heart of a man named Matthew (Richard Farnsworth), who is to be her new parent. After she jabberboxes on their journey through fields, around the Lake of Shining Waters, and the trail of endless lace (Names that she gives the stretches of landscape they pass) they soon arrive at Green Gables. Once inside, the reluctant Matthew reveals the red headed child to Marrila, his sister. She quickly becomes enraged, "What is that!" Then Matthew says, "It's a girl." She says "I can see that...where is the boy?" He shrugs, "Was no boy, just her." That is the setup for the film, and one of the biggest challenges for Anne to overcome: winning Marrila's heart. Also one of the funniest things happens when she tries to dye her hair "A Beautiful, Raven, Black" and it ends up green. Anne of Green Gables is the first of a trilogy, and is an adventure to experience; As I have probably a hundred times! ~S.A.O.S~
