Petals in the Wind product reviews

A decade after Cathy, Christopher, and Carrie escaped from their grandparents' attic at Foxworth Hall, Petals on the Wind continues to follow the twisted plight of the family as they attempt to put their sordid past behind them. They soon discover certain secrets can't be left behind.

When Cathy finds herself in an abusive relationship with a fellow dancer, Julian, Christopher and Cathy are forced to face the forbidden feelings they developed for one another while coming of age during captivity. But when tragedy strikes the Dollangangers once again, Cathy returns to Foxworth Hall to confront her grandmother and seek revenge on her mother with a plan to seduce her husband Bart.

When Christopher runs to Cathy's side, the two are determined to start over again - together.

This definitely has a 'made for tv movie' feel about it, which is a real shame as should be made into a proper movie. The actors are different in this movie as ten years have passed and I feel the casting definitely improved with this movie. I found the characters more believable and New Zealander Rose McIver takes the lead role of Cathy.

The movie starts terribly. After the funeral of Paul Sheffield (adoptive father) there is a scene with Carrie, Cathy and Chris walking away from the coffin and there is a close up of Carries hand and she daintily drops the flowers, right there I considered turning it off it was so badly done. I was not really expecting much and it was a tad boring, very dramatised, but better acting then Flowers in the Attic, well by some of the actors at least.

I do not really remember much of the book as read it years ago, but I think they should of included some of the doctor scenes and showed the relationship and/or at least the miscarriage scene. It is mentioned but not very well. This is more about Chris and Cathy and there undying love, even though they get involved with other people, they were always destined to be together. I felt Carries death was extremely rushed and they basically over looked a lot to do with her. It did show the teasing and addressed how undeveloped she was compared to other girls and how isolated she felt and how she missed her twin, but her death scene was not handled very well.

I am glad I finally got to see a movie adaptation of the book. It was an okay movie and I did like how they brought up Cory's death and how the mother in the end went crazy and let slip a lot of what happened. I just hope one day it is made into the block buster it truly deserves.
