This sequel to Anne of Green Gables is just as good as, and perhaps even better than, the first. Anne is a fully grown adult now, and so some of her tendencies, such as her temper and tendency to romanticize almost anything, have mellowed somewhat. Yet, she's still the same irrepressible character we love, and her costars don't disappoint, either. Adults and teens will be pleased to see Anne's maturity as she steps into a new teaching position, reaches out to a lonely student, learns what true love looks like, and even becomes a writer.
The film is filled with great discussion topics, which include: Anne's teaching style and classroom management. What does she do that would be considered unacceptable today? Why is it considered such? Do you agree with her methods? Anne's search for love: what does she learn about love on her journey? How are Gil and Morgan different, and who in your opinion should she have chosen? Why? Emmaline: What kind of life does she have? How could her family make that life better for her? And more! For length's sake, save this one for older kids, but otherwise, you will love it.
