I liked Hannah's portrayal of Anne, and think she did a marvelous job. I really enjoyed the way Kevin did the flashbacks, and poor Anne's trials and tribulations. It was hilarious at times. I so liked how it was explained how she came about wanting to be called Cordellia, and how she can to be in possession of the old carpet bag. The characters I didn't care for too much in the movie were the Asylum keepers, they were just plain ole mean!
The characters I enjoyed watching were the Old Anne and the Young Anne... they did a great job with the casting.
I didn't like any of the other characters very much. It was hard to get a handle on characters like Louisa or Anne's father, or even Amelia or Nellie, since their motivations shifted with little rhyme nor reason.
