Anne Shirley, the irrepressible 11-year-old heroine of this classic, is one of the most beloved characters in Canadian literature. It's easy to see why in this wonderful adaptation of the story of an orphan who comes to live with an elderly brother and sister on their Prince Edward Island farm. Ellie Fairman is superb as Anne, delivering her lines in all their precocious glory, and Bill Dufris is equally perfect for his role as kind-hearted Matthew Cuthbert. Tied together with short narrated passages, the dramatized scenes are drastically abridged but are as funny and charming as those in the original novel. D.B.
