Contestant Sneak Peek - Day One

Are you read for a sneak peek of one of the 60 film contestant who will be participating in the Period Drama Film Tournament?

Here's the first one:

Anne of Green Gables series

Starring: Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst, Richard Fransworth, Jonathan Crombie

Synopsis: At the turn of the century on Prince Edward Island, Matthew Cuthbert and his sister Marilla decide to take on an orphan boy as help for their farm. But they get an unexpected jolt when they're mistakenly sent a girl instead: Anne Shirley. Anne's a dreamer with an unusual point of view, far removed from Marilla's pragmatic ways, and it's only on trial that Marilla agrees to keep Anne...if Anne can keep out of trouble. As Anne falls into a series of scrapes, makes a bosom friend, finds several kindred spirits, Matthew and Marilla discover that their lives have become a great deal richer, now that Anne is at Green Gables.

Historical Era: Edwardian Canada, L.M. Montgomery 
Cast List at IMDb

Anne of Green Gables! I love the series! However, I watched the movie when I was really young so I barely remember anything that was in it. But I'm glad it's one of the chosen sixty period dramas! Can't wait to see more.
