Anne of Green Gables

Mlotis's collectiony eldest sister has a wide collection of Anne of Green Gables book series. A pretty good read. Anne of Green Gables is a book written by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery; it was first published in 1908. It was written as fiction for readers of all ages, and it really captured my heart. Hubby bought me Anne of Green Gables Trilogy Box of the movie. It arrived in a nice box and in excellent condition that included all three of the movies: Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Green Gables, the Sequel, and Anne of Green Gables, The Continuing Story, each being double sided (back-to-back). They have these movies restored and neat and fun extra features like the making of the movie, missing scenes, cast biographies and commentaries were great! After receiving the DVD Trilogy Box I started to watch the first one in Amanda’s room for the main player was reset. I could not wait to watch the second, then the third. I watched them in one night and one day, because it was just so gripping. What a delightful story from start to finish. I kept watching it over and over again, and am carried all over again. So refreshing to see something with depth and meaning as well as a little humor thrown in. The story is just humbling and touching, can call it so simply basic, I cried several times, just couldn’t help it, and even laughed on simple childish things. The setting is beautifully nostalgic that I remember the old place I grew up on. This is the best by far in the way of a feel good movie I have every seen. And the sound track! The acting draws you into the movie as if you were there. All the characters made a rush of excitement return as we see Anne learn to love Marilla & Matthew and come to realize her real feelings for Gilbert Blythe like it was the first time. Anne Shirley really is a kindred spirit of mine. I loved reliving all the adventures with that "Anne girl" "carrots". Watching Anne with an "E" brought me all the way back to being 16 years old again and made me feel all the wonderful memories of being young and innocent and remembering and feeling the time when we are “in-love” all over again especially every time Anne Shirley had that encounter with Gilbert Blythe. On the third DVD I had been waiting for Marilla to be shown, then I found out she died before the movie was finished. Another chord struck there, so sad, it will just make you miss the characters. These movies belong to the best movies ever made, and will always be a classic to those who have youthful hearts. This is truly a classic! As timeless as it is, I will always love and draw inspiration from this movie. Speaking of the movie title in relation to my blog's, hehehe..

the real Green Gabled house in the story; photo from wikiThe Plot: Miss Marilla Cuthbert and Mr. Matthew Cuthbert, middle-aged siblings who live together at Green Gables, a farm in Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, decide to adopt an orphan boy from the asylum as a helper on their farm. Through a series of mishaps, what ends up under their roof is a precocious girl of eleven named Anne Shirley. Anne is bright and quick, eager to please but dissatisfied with her name, her pale countenance dotted with freckles, and with her long braids of red hair. Being a child of imagination, however, Anne takes much joy in life, and adapts quickly, thriving in the environment of Prince Edward Island.The rest of the story recounts her continued education at school, where she excels in studies very quickly, her budding literary ambitions and her friendships with people such as Diana Barry (her best friend), Jane Andrews, Ruby Gillis, and her rivalry with Gilbert Blythe, who teased her about her red hair and for that acquired her hatred, although he apologized many times. They compete in class and Anne one day realizes she no longer hates Gilbert, but won't admit it. Then the love story continues..
