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.
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 😉
