Taking the film for what it is ...
Verified purchase
Ok, yes, it is not like the book, and personally I think book 2 and 3 would translate better in a film anyway. But, taking the film for what it is, it is very well done. The detail is worked out fine, and the story is good. Most characters are well worked out, though yes, not entirely according to the book. It misses something in the end though, and I felt they could work on the "rounding up" of the story a bit better (it felt slightly rushed). But, worth a watch, especially when you like the 1980's Anne of Green Gable films and Little House on the Prairy. It certainly belongs to the collection of costume dramas.

A really nice family film, it was quite emotional but in a good way.

Shouldn't be named after the book
Verified purchase
They should have just changed the title - the movie bears very little resemblance to the book. Fans of the book will be very disappointed. You have to ask, if they didn't want to keep the story at least somewhat similar, why bother giving the movie this title? A waste of money.

What Katy Did
This DVD was the most disappointing I have bought. It bears absolutely no resemblance to the books. I gave up watching it after 20mins. It is not a DVD for those who have read the books. Even one of the sisters, Clovis, is missing. I am so disappointed I am going to re sell the DVD.
