Movie Info

This Canadian TV movie stars Marion Bennett as a young girl possessed of mysterious powers. No Carrie she, Bennett hopes to harness her unique gifts for good. Her main mission is to reunite her long-estranged mother and father. The film makes excellent atmospheric use of its mist-enshrouded Prince Edward Island locations. Lantern Hill was originally telecast in two parts on PBS' weekend Wonderworks series.

Critic Reviews for Lantern Hill (Jane of Lantern Hill)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The production is first-rate, from the uniformly solid performances to Kevin Sullivan's silky direction and the colorful screenplay he wrote with Fiona McHugh.

For filmmaker Kevin Sullivan, this is another handsome adaptation of a Lucy Maud Montgomery novel, as lustrous as his Anne of Green Gables. The entire cast turns in affecting performances.

Audience Reviews for Lantern Hill (Jane of Lantern Hill)


Jane is a young girl who reminds me of Anne Shirley of Green Gables. She takes it upon herself to reconcile her parents even though her mom lives in Toronto and her dad in Prince Edward Island (where the movie is set). It makes for a great family movie
