A New Beginning: Anne of Green Gables - Return to Alice's Wonderland
January 4, 2015
This movie is anything but linear. It winds, turns, looks back, and is confusing to anyone who is not fully absorbed in the full story - multiple stories. It had been awhile a while since my family members had watched it and they wished the had notes from the first move. I never saw the first movie and there weren't any clues about which events linked back - leaving me feeling like I was reading Alice In Wonderland or something.
I liked this movie. I wished the original actors were in it, but the new characters did a great job. It was interesting how the writers decided to end the series. A very happy ending for an orphan girl.
I was very disappointed in this movie. It doesn't compare to the original movie. I would not recommend this movie. It was quite boring. No use keeping it will donate it to community aid. Wish I had see other reviews before I bought it.
This was an odd sort of sequel/prequel, telling the supposed "back story" of Anne of Green Gables. I found it convuluted and rather sadly depressing; it droned on and on, and I actually fell asleep before it ended, something I never could imagine doing with the amazing Anne series. It was really a letdown, and was too expensive for such a poor showing.
