Reviews:  NTSC/Region 1. It is 1945 and Anne Shirley (Academy-Award nominee and Golden Globe winner, Barbara Hershey), now a successful, middle-aged writer, has returned to Prince Edward Island. A long lost letter from her errant father, discovered under the floorboards in Green Gables, causes Anne to delve into long-buried memories. While writing a play, she relives the troubled years after her mother died and before she arrived as an orphan at the Green Gables farm. She confronts the fact that she made up stories about her childhood. During that time, Young Anne (newcomer Hanna Endicott-Douglas), is taken into the care of a wealthy matriarch, Amelia Thomas (Academy-Award winner Shirley MacLaine) and her daughter-in-law, Louisa (Rachel Blancard), which changes her life forever.
