The one magical part of being a parent is having little people with whom to share the things you loved pursuing as a kid (and hopefully watching them enjoy it as much as you once did). And since as a child I devoured the book Anne of Green Gables, being able to share this timeless classic with my kids and then having the privilege of watching a new series (based on the book) on Netflix with them- is pretty much as joyful for me as just about anything.
And my son and I were pretty excited to get one on one with the Star of the series Anne with an E which is basically Anne of Green Gables for 21st-century audiences as written by long time producer of breaking Bad Moira Walley-Beckett and starring AmyBeth McNulty a feisty Irish born ginger haired actress. Check out our interview and keep reading for deets on our giveaway!
According to the Atlantic “The current consensus on Anne With an E, the new CBC adaptation of Anne of Green Gables debuting Friday on Netflix, is that it’s a darker interpretation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved 1908 novel. Certainly, the first two episodes, which explore how the 13-year-old Anne Shirley is adopted by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, deviate from the book in offering dramatic and painful flashbacks to Anne’s life before the Cuthberts took her in. When Anne first arrives at Green Gables—set in the fictional town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island—she’s as garrulous and joyously imaginative as ever, but it’s also clear that her experiences as an orphan have left her deeply traumatized.”
And after getting up close and personal with the Star and show runner yesterday I can attest to the fact that this is a series that will be beloved by both parents and their kids!
