About the Film

Premiere date: November 24, 2016.

L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables tells the story of Anne Shirley, a precocious young girl taken from an orphanage and placed in the care of the uptight Marilla Cuthbert and her brother, Matthew. The conservative Marilla has a profound effect on the adventurous Anne and creates a journey of learning and personal engagement that has resonated with generations since L.M. Montgomery’s "Anne of Green Gables" was first published in 1908. The book remains an iconic work of Canadian literature and has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
