Here again, I found myself buying this movie along with the sequel, as a gift for another. Having viewed both previously on PBS, I didn't have to worry about the content . Very tastefully done in all aspects of the film(s). Upon my viewing of them: it's too bad one can't give more than 5-stars, it was worth it and more. There isn't enough out there coming across the television that is worthy of viewing.
If you have not seen this movie, it is a MUST! a classic that both men and women love. it is about a young girl who is orphaned and her life. sounds boring but i personally have had many people over to watch it and everyone LOVES it. My nieces love it. Not so much my nephews! It is a feel good movie. I will usually watch when i am sick as it always makes me feel better.

Really great older show from PBS...got this but then had to go buy the entire series because my dad loved it so much again after so many years. Might want to go there first and save the time later.

It was a pleasure to order this film from Overstock. A prompt delivery was appreciated. This film is a classic which can be enjoyed by all ages. It is a story that mirrors a time in history when orphans had a very difficult life. This high quality film will be loaned around to others. I guarantee this affords two hours of delightful viewing!
I LOVE this movie. I replaced my old worn out VHS tape with this DVD. It is a wholesome and refreshing movie that is completely suitable for the entire family. I have never dealt with overstock.com before. I was very happy with the transaction. I received the DVD quickly and in excellent condition. I will definitely deal with them again in the future.
This is a great story for pre-teen girls but will appeal to everyone. It's probably considered a "chick flick", but some guys might enjoy watching with the women in their life. My daughter and I usually watch it at least once a year. It always makes us laugh, cry and we're sad when it's over. There is a sequel which is equally as good. If you love the first one, you have to watch the sequel. There is nothing offensive in either one and the values that are taught are wonderful.
It's a shame that this isn't broadcast on PBS anymore- it was for years. This film is by far the best family/young girl movie ever produced. It is worth watching just for the beautiful scenery. I strongly recommend the sequel as well. This movie appeals to all ages, with even my 5-year old loving it. Note: It is lengthy, so you'll probably have to break it into several sessions. Or, if you're going on a road trip, this will take you a long way.
You will not regret this purchase of both videos. It is a timeless story. Filmed in Canada with all the glory of their nature and the age of inocense will give you a remembering taste of your childhood. Megan Follows made "Anne Shirley" come to life. This is a must have to add to your family collection or purchase it for a friend. Believe me. You will treasure this story.
