Coming to DVD on November 7, 2017, from PBS/ Breakthrough Entertainment, is L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables The Good Stars which is directed by John Kent Harrison and stars Martin Sheen (Badge of Honor), Ella Ballentine (Saving Hope TV Series), Sara Botsford (The Lizzie Borden Chronicles). Anne Shirley is 13 years old and finds that life in Avonlea is never simple. Anne’s bosom friendship with Diana Berry is put to the test when Anne begins to spend more time with Gilbert Blythe. And when Matthews health begins to slide, he implores Anne to keep it secret because he doesn’t want Marilla and must then wrestle with the burden of her betrayal to Matthew. Torn between her free-spirited nature and her own perceived need to become sensible, Anne finds that the journey towards her goal is fraught with confusion and more than a few unfortunate yet amusing mishaps.
My Opinion: I just love the simplicity of Anne of Green Gables as it takes place and a time when life was simpler and you had more fun outdoors than you do today. This movie shows how it’s hard for a 13-year-old to keep the truth about a friend who is sick and she really wants to share with somebody and struggles with it.
