I was so excited to watch Petals On The Wind because I loved the book. For Flowers In The Attic, they made a good movie. Sure some details were skipped. Though in this one to miss the whole beginning of the book and one of the main men, who was very important, just dismissed? I mean sure skimp a little, but don't make something that ruins the memory of it. I have never been so disappointed in a movie in my entire life. Honestly if you make a movie based on a book, perhaps reading the book, even just skimming the pages would be a good idea. I hope they don't ruin the rest of the series this way. I believe V.C. Andrews would have made sure a book she wrote would have at least had a decent movie made out of it. For a movie this long at least have it related to the book. Based On The Novel used to mean something.
