Canadian novelist Lucy Maud Montgomery has her ANNE OF GREEN GABLES novel brought to the screen in this four-part production. The first story finds young Anne Shirley settling into her new life after arriving at the farm of her adoptive parents Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. The second part finds Anne transforming from a bright young adolescent to a well-established teacher. The third part of the story sees Anne moving to New York with her husband Gilbert, and then back to Avonlea, where Gilbert becomes a soldier and goes missing during wartime. And the last movie serves as a prequel and sequel at the same time as Anne reflects on her life.
