Why was Anne such a bitch to Josie?
When they were off taking the exams, it seemed like Josie was trying to bury the hatchet with Anne, but Anne kept bad mouthing her: "Tell me, how are the first year students doing?" and when Josie tells Anne she's completely gotten over Gilbert (who wasn't even handsome or interesting, btw) Anne says "I'm surprised he could even insult you." What was that even supposed to mean? I know some will say it's because Josie was stuck up as a teenager, but Anne sort of brought that whole falling off the roof business on herself when she started getting catty with Josie, who was simply showing off and wasn't doing or saying anything to Anne. Also, Anne is always meant to be someone who's looked up to and admired, but when she was refusing to speak with Gilbert and playing hard to get, she still freaked out if she even saw him talking to another girl and was unreasonably cruel to him. I haven't read the book since grammar school, so if Josie was in some way worse in the book, maybe I could understand it better, but the movie just makes her look like a jealous, bubble headed fool with zero common sense.share
