This version of Anne of Green Gables was absolutely dreadful. Where doI begin? Right off the bat, when I knew I was doomed to disappointment,was Martin Sheen playing the soulful shy Matthew as if he was some kindof slapstick comic. Yakitty yakkity Yak to his horse, and then fallingface first into a mud puddle. SMH.Too bad, because the scene on thetrain was actually quite promising. I thought Martin Sheen was a goodactor and was willing to give him a chance, but this was disgraceful.It was probably the direction.

The young actress who played Anne, delivered her lines. Period.Whenever a line came close to echoing a line Megan Follows said, thecontrast would have been laughable if it weren't so inept. One of thepivotal comic scenes, (Anne's "apology" to Rachel after her rudebehavior) took place in a wide shot and without audible dialogue. Itwas probably a mercy. She wasn't helped by the freckles put on with apencil that kept appearing and disappearing, and that dye job on herhair! When she got into the sunlight, it looked like something a cheaptart would do to her hair. Again, probably the direction rather thanthe young actresses fault.

Any production has a tough row to hoe to even come close to theperfection that was The Sullivan Production. That whole cast wasperfection itself and truly inhabited their roles. I won't talk aboutthe lack of depth. The whole Minnie May episode,I swear, clocked in atunder a minute and that included the reconciliation scene. And"Matthew" continually on the verge of a heart attack. I guess staytuned for the next installment. The Actor who played Gilbert lookedyounger than Anne and came across as a bratty little brother. Theactress who played Marilla actually was not bad, though not the samecharacter that Colleen Dewhurst interpreted. And Rachel was alsoexcellent. The little actress who played Diana was a bright spot, aslittle screen time as she had. Again, no depth. And miscasting. Sheshould have played Anne. There will probably be a second installment tothis as many of the key scenes were left out entirely (no Lily maid ofAstalot. No Miss Stacy.) If they recast an older Anne and Gilbert, andkill Matthew off quickly, it might have a chance to be half-way decent.

There is hope. The early 1930's version with Dawn O'Day (Anne Shirley),Tom Brown, and Helen Westley was a wonder and showed that you couldconvey the charm of this story in 78 minutes flat, and even manages toinclude a satisfying romance between Anne and Gilbert.

Attractive but also both bland and rushedReviewed byTheLittleSongbirdVote: 5/10

Lucy Maud Montgomery's 'Anne of Green Gables' is a literary classic, and, while not every adaptation of 'Anne of Green Gables' has been watched by me, count me in as somebody who also adores the 1985 version and who considers it vastly superior to this latest effort.

Every adaptation deserves to stand on its own two feet, regardless of how well or badly it fares to the source material or how it stacks up with other adaptations. As has been said, this 'Anne of Green Gables' underwhelms as an adaptation, the details are there but not the spirit with the film seeming to forget what it is about the story that makes it resonate so much. On its own terms, it also is just as problematic. To me it isn't as awful as has been said, but the disappointment is understandable.

There are good things with 'Anne of Green Gables' (2016). On the most part it looks very attractive, with beautiful and quaint scenery, evocative costume and production design and photography that gives off a real wholesome charm that reminds one fondly of cosy period dramas or something like 'The Waltons'. The music is lilting and suitably whimsical as well as with the right understated touch when needed.

'Anne of Green Gables (2016)' casting has been criticised and again understandably, with reservations for a few also shared. Ella Ballentine, starting with the positives of the casting, is a spirited and charming Anne, even if Megan Follows embodied the role much more Ballentine doesn't fare badly at all on her own and her spirit and charm lifts the film from mediocrity at best to something a little better. Julia Lalonde is perfectly cast as Diana, and Stefani Kimber's Josie is a bright spot too.

However, despite most of the details being there the spirit (apart from a cosy wholesomeness) isn't there, suffering from the pacing and dialogue delivery especially being too rushed and characters and essential plot points being either underutilised or re-written in polar opposite fashion. Gilbert is both downplayed and underused, with a too young Drew Haytaoglu being pretty bland in the role, and while it was appreciated that the relationship between Anne and Marilla had more prominence when it is often the romance it would have been appreciated more if it didn't feel like it dominated too much and that the character of Marilla had a better mix of the hard and soft rather than just being cranky and also less severe to usual. This too would have given Sara Botsford more room to stretch herself and her talents, what should have been a pretty juicy role limited her too much and never allows her to disappear into it.

Martin Sheen overplays in the role of Matthew, that is also written too extrovertedly. As much as this sounds like a purist, one of the book's biggest pleasures (of which there are too many to list) is how momentous the reader feels when Anne wins Marilla and Matthew over, when you have the roles written in polar-opposite fashion, Marilla needing more severity and more of a mix of hard and soft and Matthew needing to be more introverted and gentle, like here this momentous feeling is lost. The editing also feels very jerky too, while the script is rushed and often stilted in delivery and has a anachronistically modern feel that distracts too much from the period (as well as a few gratuitous darker elements that was best omitted). The ending has too much of a too sudden and unfinished feel to it.

Overall, looks attractive, has a nice score and with a few casting bright spots but feels both too bland and rushed. 5/10 Bethany Cox

Disappointing, poor casting and directingReviewed byrishjayVote: 3/10

I have read the books and have seen all adaptations of Anne of green gables. This new movie doesn't even come close to what was done in 1985 with Megan follows. I had to force myself to watch the entire movie. The casting and the direction was very poor. Anne in this movie did not flow effortlessly in her acting like Megan follows did and I found it particularly annoying how Matthew was not true to his character. The dialogues felt rushed and not natural. Many scenes were not given enough attention to detail and proper care. I had to re=watch the 1985 version to get over the disappointment. Please do not do a remake if you can't do a better version of the previous.
