NETFLIX'S ANNE WITH AN E
I absolutely adored this version of Anne of Green Gables. It's so much freer of stereotypes than the previous Colleen Dewhurst version, and more honest about Anne's true, dark and tragic circumstances. Not acknowledging Anne's heartrending past, robs her of the heroic triumph of her entrancingly feminine intellect and imagination, without which Anne becomes a treacly sweet girl. That was never what we loved about Anne. What we love about her is the way the fire of her imagination burns away the dross of the world she's had to endure and transforms it into Avonlea; that is what has made her a heroine for all time.
Netflix's Anne with an e is a triumph that surpasses all other versions. It's the best movie series in years. The series is just staggeringly well cast, every single one of the actors is brilliant, and every performance is topnotch and a marvel. Faultlessly perfect. An entire delight.
