L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES THE GOOD STARS” is now available on DVD. The run time is approximately 90 minutes, and has an SRP of $19.99. The program will also be available for digital download.
In this installment, Anne Shirley turns 13 and faces complex situations with friends, learns from inspirational adults, and experiences an escalating friendship with Gilbert. Her free-spirited nature is challenged by her perceived need to be sensible, a journey fraught with confusion and some unfortunate — albeit amusing — mishaps.
The program, written and directed by John Kent Harrison will once again star critically acclaimed actor Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, along with the return of Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley (“The Captive”) and Sara Botsford (“E.N.G.”) as Marilla Cuthbert.
Additional cast members include Julia Lalonde (“Catch a Christmas Star”) as Diana Barry, Kate Hennig (“Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould”) as Rachel Lynde, Stefani Kimber (“Remember”) as Josie Pye, Drew Haytaoglu (“Looks Just Like the Sun”) as Gilbert Blythe, Kyle Gatehouse (“Source Code”) as Mr. Phillips and Linda Kash (“Cinderella Man”) as Mrs. Barry.
My Thoughts: As I mentioned above, despite being a little dubious about a "new" Anne I was delighted. The young actress playing Anne (Ella Ballentine) manages to capture the character's spunk and intelligence beautifully. I also really enjoy Martin Sheen in the role of Matthew (love him!). The program stays pretty true to the original book all while offering a fresh spin on the classic which I think will be help create a brand new generation of Anne Shirley fans. This is a wonderful show that the entire family will enjoy watching together. I highly recommend it! You can pick this up now on Amazon here.
