Flowers In The Attic TV Movie Comes To Lifetime On January 18th
When I was in high school I remember my English teacher assigning us this book to read. I didn’t even know it was on the banned books list but I guess at some point it was or still is in some states. When I started reading this book I had no idea how it would go but when it started to get dark I still couldn’t stop reading I just wanted to finish off the book and see how it would go. If you’ve read the book before then you know this is going to be a great movie. I can’t wait. I’ve been seeing the previews for weeks and I already have my DVR scheduled to record it. I hope you tune in to catch the premiere of Flowers in the Attic on Lifetime, it airs on Janurary 18th @8 PM ET/PT.
About Flowers In The Attic:
Based on V.C. Andrews’ controversial book that quickly became a cult classic, the Lifetime Original Movie Flowers in the Atticpremieres on Saturday, January 18, 2014, at 8pm PT/ET. Starring Heather Graham (Drugstore Cowboy), Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award-winner Ellen Burstyn (Political Animals), Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Mason Dye (Secret Diary of an American Cheerleader) and Dylan Bruce (Orphan Black), Flowers in the Attic is the gothic tale of four siblings who are locked away to live in an attic after a family tragedy suddenly removes them from their perfect childhood.
Flowers in the Attic weaves the twisted story of the Dollanganger kids who, after the unexpected death of their father, are convinced by their mother Corrine (Graham) to stay hidden in the attic of their wealthy grandparents’ mansion so she can reclaim the family fortune. But as her visits begin to wane after she becomes involved with a new husband (Bruce), the children endure unimaginable treatment at the hands of their ruthless grandmother Olivia Foxworth (Burstyn). As years go by and the eldest children Cathy (Shipka) and Christopher (Dye) come of age, both emotionally and physically, their family’s sordid past entraps them further as they look to each other for comfort.
Andrews’ first published novel, Flowers in the Attic was an instant hit when it was released in 1979, topping bestsellers lists in just two weeks. Captivating millions of readers worldwide, the book launched a series of five novels about the Dollanganger and Foxworth families. Andrews’ novels are famous for their twisted, rags-to-riches family tales that explore why people love to hate and hurt each other. Today, there are 106 million copies of her books that have been published in 95 countries.
