Anne is Netflix’s reimagining of the classic Anne of Green Gables novels by L. M. Montgomery. The coming-of-age story is about an outsider who, against all odds and challenges, fights for love and acceptance to find her place in the world.
Set in the late 1890s on Price Edward Island, Anne Shirley is a young orphaned girl who has had an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers. She is mistakenly sent to live with an ageing sister and brother but the 13-year-old soon transforms the lives of Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, and eventually the entire small town with her unique spirit and brilliant imagination. Her adventures reflect the timeless issues we continue to face including themes of identity, feminism, bullying and prejudice.
All eight-episodes of Anne hit Netflix on May 12th.
