A good sequal

Not as good as the first, but still fun and enjoyable for the whole family. This movie gave you a look at Anne's new challenges in life and how they helped her grow into a better person. She took cold characters that were stuck in their way and wiggled her heart into it making them warm up to life. The hope and belief of one person can change the world, one person at a time. If you like the first movie, defiantly watch this one!

a necessary evil -- well, not so evil!

It's really tough to try to follow up a movie as spectacular and perfect as the first "Anne of Green Gables." However, as a purist, I must admit that the books were written as a series, and this is a necessary part of the story. And the film is well done. What's hard for real Anne fans to deal with in this movie is that it involves Anne moving past Avonlea. We all love Anne so much because, like her, we don't really want anything to change. We want to be Lost Children on our own island paradise forever, and once Anne grows up, we're forced to admit that we have too. This movie's actually pretty good -- and if I weren't complaining about my lost childhood, I'd be complaining that they never made a sequel. Overall I give this one a thumbs-up.

Megan Follows Another Triumph-Anne of Green Gables (The Sequel) ***1/2

Wonderful sequel to the 1985 original film. In this film, Anne has become a teacher and faces the challenges of classroom life. Gilbert loves her dearly. She wants to be friends with him, but expects more from life. As the film went on, I was thinking that Anne would wind up as another Helen Trent.

This very good film really soars when Anne accepts a teaching job at a Womens College. Here we see class distinctions working at their absolute work. The Pringle Family controls the town and are nothing more than egotistical snobs looking to make Anne miserable. For college girls to act like that was unbelievable. I thought I was back in junior high school.

Besides Ms. Follows and Jonathan Crombie(as Gilbert), there are excellent performances especially by Ms. Dunsmore as Miss Brooks, who is afraid of life and is apparently stewing in her own misery. She etches an unforgettable character as a tyrant of a principal out to get Anne at any cost. Even when Anne proves herself worthy, Miss Brooks is as keenly jealous as ever. It takes the picture for Anne to win Miss Brooks over. Naturally, Brooks has a breakout scene where she declares her hatred for teaching. Wait a minute. She is out of the classroom as the school principal.

The late Dame Wendy Hiller is fabulous here as a tyrannical Mrs. Harris, making life miserable for all around her, especially her long suffering daughter. Anne has that natural talent to win her over.

The picture is fabulous because it shows us what basically good people can accomplish.
