Timeless children’s favourite Anne of Green Gables gets a brand new feature length adaptation starring Martin Sheen, which is set to arrive on DVD courtesy of Second Sight.
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s most beloved and enduring book Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies and now, based on this all-time classic, a heart-warming new film arrives on DVD, digital and on-demand on 20 March 2017. It will also be shown on ITV.
When ageing couple Matthew (Martin Sheen – The Departed) and Marilla Cuthbert (Sara Botsford – The Lizzie Borden Chronicles) offer to take in an orphan boy to help on their farm, they are mistakenly sent chatty, bookish redhead Anne Shirley (Ella Ballentine – Standoff). They reluctantly agree that she can stay and soon the loveable, feisty Anne turns their lives upside down with her mischievous ways, day-dreaming and fearlessness – and her knack for charming everyone she meets.
Follow the adventures of Anne of Green Gables in this wonderful film that will delight the whole family.
The Madhouse kids loved the character of Anne, who reminded me of a cross between Pippi Longstocking and Little House on the Prairie, and the film brought up the interesting issue of "why did they only want a boy and not a girl?", so we had a good chat about all the things that girls can do now but that they couldn't or weren't supposed to do many years ago. It's a fun, heartwarming movie that the whole family will enjoy - don't forget the popcorn !
