‘Anne With An E’

Take a break from all your worries and visit Green Gables. Netflix’s new original family series, Anne With An E, is a vibrant retelling of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic tale about hope, friendship, and imagination. Little Anne Shirley has been bounced around foster care and orphanages her whole life. An honest mistake puts her in the charge of siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, noble-minded farmers who live a good, simple life on Prince Edward Island. Can the wounded — but clever and imaginative — girl win them over for good?

‘The Jungle Book’ (2016)

Is there anything Jon Favreau can't do?
