Movie Reviews

Reviewed by theredmare3 / 10


To anybody who ever saw the ultimate TV series adaptation with Megan Follows.... And no offence meant to this cast who is undoubtedly doing their best, But this is wrong, wrong wrong on every level.

This is dull as dishwater and has zero sparkle, even feels completely anachronistic in the actors' delivery and dialogs.

It feels like bad fanfiction. The children are doing a good job but they're not Anne, Diana nor Gilbert, not by any stretch of the imagination. As to the adults, the least said the better. Pointless remake of an absolute all-time classic (I mean it) , which I recommend to anyone who has never watched it.

Avoid this at all costs when you can see the other one.

And please don't click on "not helpful", unless you HAVE seen the eighties version I'm on about because you couldn't even envisage how superior it is ;)

darker flashbacks and condensed story

Siblings Marilla (Sara Botsford) and Matthew Cuthbert (Martin Sheen) are looking to adopt a boy to help out on their PEI farm. They are shocked to be given the talkative, precocious orphan Anne Shirley (Ella Ballentine). Marilla tries to send her back. Anne is haunted by abuses at the orphanage and unstable homes. She befriends Diana Barry and Josie Pye is the mean girl. Anne gets into a fight with Gilbert Blythe.

Megan Follows can't be replaced but this one does go a little darker. Anne starts off like a victim. The black and white flashbacks add to that sad and darker start. The well-worn story gets a condensed treatment. It ends when Marilla stops Anne from leaving. The rest is left on the budget cutting floor. Ballentine does a good job. She isn't quite as comical as Follows. This Anne has more feisty anger and bitter sadness.

Just Too Saccharine

This movie is so syrupy. After having seen other renditions, including the new series on Netflix, "Anne, With an E," this one is put to shame. First of all, as a teacher, I used these books many times. They are extremely well written and have a real edge to them. Marilla's slow acceptance of Anne is totally lost here. She is a harsh, practical woman and Anne really gets on her nerves. I'm a big fan of Martin Sheen going back forty some years. But his portrayal of Matthew is a total miscast. His cutesy, confident character is the opposite of the Matthew I know. First of all, Matthew is generally frightened of his sister and doesn't dare to confront her. The problem is that she gives up right away and lets Matthew have much more freedom than the real story portrays. Anne's previous experiences are so harsh and are hardly exposed in this new telling. When Marilla starts to accept the sad little girl, it is when she sees the pain of loneliness brutality she has experienced. This makes her turnaround an act of triumph. Ann is also less interesting. She so quickly catches on with the other children, we lose the harshness and unfairness of them. There is only one girl who is really unlikable and she quickly becomes at least tolerant of Anne. Mostly, I just found this so quick and formulaic and lacking in depth with easy plot transitions.
