A willful orphan named Anne, a red-haired "exception", arrives at the home of an elderly sister and brother, and wonderful life adventures begin as Anne matures from a skinny, freckled girl into an intriguing young woman. Along the way, she embraces everyone with her imagination and dreams, and the beautiful town of Avonlea will never be the same.

I love Anne of Green Gables, and this production does decently capturing the spirit of it! My only criticism is that the voice actor for Diane is a little lacking in life. Most of the time I could ignore it, but it was really annoying in emotional scenes how placid she sounded. The other voice actors were excellent, however, and I was especially happy with Marilla.

I really wasn't a fan. The girl didn't do much to recommend herself and the guy doesn't notice until he rebounds from the previous object of his affections. Ending was anticlimactic.

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances? R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and spare emotional power.
