Anne is a 2007 Sri Lankan television series directed by Nalaka Swarnathilaka. It was based on Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. Anne was adapted from Shanika Dulani Kumanayake's translation of the novel and scripted by Swarnathilaka. It stars Vinuri Ramanayake as Anne Shirley.
The story revolves around Anne Shirley, an eleven year old girl. Her parents died when she was a little girl and then destiny changed her course.
She was treated as a servant and later was moved to an orphanage. One day a neighbour, knowing all the hardships Anne goes through, decides to take her to Manila and Matthew, a couple of distant relatives. But Manila and Matthew, who expected to adopt a boy, were a bit confused when they see Anne.
But later Anne's playful and cheerful behaviour began to change Matthew's and Manila's first impressions about her and with Anne around, their life is joyful than ever. Meanwhile, Anne meets Diana, a friend at school. Together they make a huge change in their "boring" school atmosphere.
Anne's carefree life and her playful deeds always become a talking point among others and thus... this develops the story of Anne...
