Generic, glossy, and bland
8 January 2017 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC is an ill-advised reworking of the classic Virginia Andrews novel about a grandmother keeping her grand kids locked up in the attic and the trouble which ensues. The film was already made, memorably, back in 1987, so why the producers felt the need to do another generic version I have no idea.

And I wish they hadn't: everything about this version of FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC screams play-it-safe predictability. The more shocking aspects of the novel are merely hinted at and what we get inside is a slick and glossy production with zero power. The only interesting performer here is the reliable Ellen Burstyn, tackling a horrid character with bravado, but the rest are terrible, particularly the young actors who are completely devoid of charisma. A sequel, PETALS ON THE WIND, followed.
