Disappointed again...
19 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the Flower's In the Attic books when they first came out. I was around 19 years old. The series was very popular and controversial. I was excited when they made the first movie in 1987, but was hugely disappointed in the script and acting. This movie adaption was not much better. I felt Heather Graham did a poor job of portraying the mother, Corrine. They made her so shallow from the beginning and didn't really portray how close the family was in the beginning and how hard the decision, for the mom, to move back home was. Graham's acting was so one dimensional. The kids weren't very good actors either.

The movie had most of the information and scenes from the book, but failed to translate the feeling/emotion of the book: the fear, the breaking down of trust, the desperation of eldest kids, especially during the twins declining health, the anger, pain, confusion and survival instincts that the kids went through.

So, bottom line for me is that it was just an OK movie, a B-movie ...nothing special, and didn't portray the feelings of V.C. Andrews original story. There are a lot better movies out there about children abandoned or mistreated by their moms...try Mommy Dearest, Sybil, Gracie's Choice, Kramer vs. Kramer, East of Eden, Evelyn, Nowhere Boy (John Lennon's childhood, An American Crime...these are all much better movies to spend your time watching, in My Humble Opinion!
