|Until I found "Anne with an E" I thought that "Heartland" was the most uplifting series to the spirit that I had ever seen. I still love "Heartland", but AWANE is very special - as is the whole story and life of Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of "Anne of Green Gables".
Amybeth McNulty's performance as Anne is probably the most sustained, stunning, sublime and indeed magical that I have ever seen. She makes her astonishing, beautiful, inspiring and sometimes infuriating character believable, and this series totally addictive. The author of "Anne of Green Gables" created a masterpiece of love and imagination, and this production does it full justice. The way it shows an extraordinary girl, the best and worst of people, the social mores of the time and children growing up is sublimely wonderful.
