I have always been a fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery books as well as the Kevin Sullivan movies. Whether it was Anne of Green Gables, its sequel or Road to Avonlea, I have always been pleased with what Kevin Sullivan has achieved. However, this last movie of the trilogy is not at all what I expected. I am somewhat disappointed. While the movie is okay, somewhat decent, I did not think it was very representative of any of the books nor did it pictured Anne Shirley as how she should be. Kevin Sullivan took too much liberty with the storyline and I would definitely not call it a “continuing story”. This movie is not recommended for people who have read the book and have high expectations of the movie.

My husband and myself have watched the movie on TV, when it first aired. Our opinions were mixed. Because I am a fervent fan of Anne of Green Gables and have read every single book, my expectations were totally different, and I was shocked at the dissemblance between the movie and any of the book. However, my husband, who hasn’t read any of the book did find the movie quite interesting and decent. Sadly, a movie that I recommend for non Anne Shirley fans, and to complete your trilogy!

This movie was okay. Not a 5 stars, but not as bad as everyone depicts it to be. It sure does not follow the books, but the storyline is fine. A movie I recommend for entertainment, but don’t expect to recognize any parts from the books, there are none.
