Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst, Barbara Hershey, and Academy-Award winners Richard Farnsworth, Shirley MacLaine, and Dame Wendy Hiller star in the Emmy award-winning Anne of Green Gables series. The first three films chronicle the life of Anne Shirley (Megan Follows), from her struggles as an orphan, to her triumphs as a young teacher and her search for her husband on the battlefields of Europe. In the fourth and final film, an older Anne (Barbara Hershey), now a famous author, awaits her son's return home from World War II. Through a series of flashbacks (introducing Hannah Endicott-Douglas as young Anne), she attempts to come to terms with her painful childhood memories once and for all. Experience the Anne of Green Gables series like you've never seen it before: meticulously restored from the original films, in full cinematic splendor. This widescreen collection serves as a touchstone for Anne fans, and is certain to cultivate lifelong kindred spirits as it finds new audiences.
Musical Drama based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's celebrated musical phenomenon. The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius (Gerard Butler) who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with the lovely Christine (Emmy Rossum), the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera, exerting a strange sense of control over the young soprano as he nurtures her extraordinary talents.
One of the greatest love stories of all time, Pride & Prejudice, comes to the screen in a glorious new adaptation starring Keira Knightley. When Elizabeth Bennett (Knightley) meets the handsome Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen), she believes he is the last man on earth she could ever marry. But as their lives become intertwined in an unexpected adventure, she finds herself captivated by the very person she swore to loathe for all eternity. Based on the beloved masterpiece by Jane Austen, it is the classic tale of love and misunderstanding that sparkles with romance, wit and emotional force.
North & South is a splendid, four-hour adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's 19th century novel about an unlikely, and somewhat star-crossed, love between a middle-class young woman from England's cultivated south and an intemperate if misunderstood industrialist in a hardscrabble, northern city. Daniela Denby-Ashe plays Margaret Hale, forthright and strong-willed daughter of a former vicar (Tim Pigott-Smith) who relocates his family from a pastoral village outside London to unforgiving, largely illiterate Milton, a factory town where John Thornton (Richard Armitage) and his mother (Sinead Cusack), survivors of poverty, rule their cotton mill with an iron hand. Thornton befriends Margaret's father but incurs her wrath for his severity with his workers. What she doesn't notice is Thornton's core sense of responsibility for his employees' welfare. On the other hand, he misinterprets some of Margaret's own actions and intentions. Equally stubborn, the two drag out their obvious attraction over many painful months and events.
