It's the early 1990s in the continuing saga of the Dollanganger family. After undergoing psychiatric treatment in his teens following his encounter with his now deceased grandmother Corrine Foxworth, Bart Sheffield has become the sole heir of Corrine's estate. He has rebuilt Foxworth Manor where he is living, and has legally changed his last name from Sheffield to Foxworth. The estate is legally being managed by Bart's father, Christopher Sheffield, until Bart turns twenty-five as stipulated in Corrine's will. Bart brings together his entire family to celebrate his twenty-fifth birthday, at which time an extra clause in Corrine's will is to be read as per her instructions. The family includes: his parents Chris and Cathy Sheffield, whose incestuous relationship Bart is aware of; his older brother and his wife, Jory and Melodie Marquet, who are both renowned ballet dancers; and his adopted younger teenaged sister, Cindy Sheffield, who is openly exploring her sexuality. Bart has pushed ... Written by Huggo

Fourth in the Dollanganger series
29 December 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Corrine is dead and the Foxworth Manor has been rebuilt. It is expected that religious Bart is inheriting the family fortune on his 25th birthday after years of psychiatric treatment and poisoned by Malcolm's journal. His parents Cathy and Christopher Sheffield have been managing the money for him. He has changed his name from Sheffield to Foxworth. His brother Jory is a star ballet dancer and his wife Melodie announces her pregnancy. Adopted sister Cindy overhears Bart talking about insurance on Jory over the phone. Jory performs for Bart's 25th birthday and is paralyzed by a suspicious accident. Bart and Melodie start having an affair. An extra clause in the will leaves control of the fortune to Christopher for another 10 years.

Sorry for the Star Wars reference. I like that Bart is fully Darth Vader. There is no more Anakin. It makes it much more fun. He is deliciously crazy and evil. He makes this better than 'If There Be Thorns'. As Lifetime movies go, this series is better than most. It's an overwrought soap.
