Petals On the Wind DVD Review
When I was in high school one of our reading assignments for honors English was Flowers in the Attic. Earlier this year Lifetime Movies brought the book to the television screen. The highly anticipated tv movie was trending on Twitter and all the actors did a superb job. When I was contacted to review the follow up Petals In the Wind I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I was so excited about checking it out. I was provided a review copy. Any opinions expressed are my own.
I haven’t read the other books in the V.C Andrews Dollanganger Family series. The only one I have read is Flowers in the Attic so I was in for a total surprise with this movie. For other fans though they are very familiar with the books so they know what expect from the movies. Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn did an awesome job in the movie. As soon as it arrived I watched it the same day. It was another awesome addition to the series. I really hope they do continue adding more of them and expanding the series. I just couldn’t believe how awesome it was. The Dollanganger kids have grown up some but they are still dealing with the issues from their childhood. Revenge is the main theme in this movie for me, at least that’s what I saw. If you’re a fan of these books you’re going to want to own this DVD.
About Petals On The Wind:
Set 15 years in the future from the end of the previous film, the second installment shadows the Dollanganger children as they attempt to find their way in the world following their escape after years of imprisonment. Petals on the Wind continues to follow the twisted plight of the Dollanganger family as they attempt to put their sordid past behind them. But, as they soon discover, certain secrets can’t be left behind. When Cathy finds herself in an abusive relationship, Christopher and Cathy are forced to face their forbidden feelings. And as tragedy strikes again, Cathy returns to Foxworth Hall to confront her grandmother and seek revenge on her mother. Christopher runs to Cathy’s side, and the two are determined to start over again — together. Petals on the Wind DVD is available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
