TV Review: ‘L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables’ on PBS
This Friday, Netflix premiered the latest version of the much-adapted story of Anne Shirley—the scrappy, smart, red-headed orphan from Prince Edward Island. While Anne has been a bona fide cultural icon for over a century—ever since Canadian author L. Montgomery first debuted her in —she holds a special place in the hearts of children of the 80s and 90s who grew up on a wildly popular two-part CBC miniseries, Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea —directed by Kevin Sullivan and starring Megan Follows. But those hoping the series recaptures the glow of either the original Montgomery books or the s adaptation are in for a rude awakening. Emmy-winning Anne writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett —who knows something about darkness, thanks to her work on four seasons of Breaking Bad —strains to break away from the simple, homespun charm of earlier versions.
The group CDZA has a series of odd and amusing videos where they run the lyrics of pop songs through Google Translate and then have a performer reproduce what happens when you translate them back into English. In the television movie, which will air on PBS this Thanksgiving, Anne Ella Ballentine is a bit too adorable to play the homely orphan, with freckles that appear to be dotted on by a makeup artist and a temperament that is more confusingly erratic than charmingly mercurial. Anne, in the book, is a singularly Victorian construct, characterized by bursts of temper, flights of fancy, and multisyllabic words.
