“Petals on the Wind” has premiered on Lifetime on Monday, May 26, 2014 and it is the sequel to the novel “Flowers in the Attic” by V.C. Andrews. The book is about the story of the Dollanganger children’s life outside of their attic of Foxworth Hall where their own mother and grandmother held them captive for years. Read more for more details about Lifetime’s “Petals on the Wind.”

“Flowers in the Attic” was a huge success when it aired 4 years ago, so the network decided to adapt the second novel for the small screen. Is “Petals on the Wind” a good Memorial weekend movie? Judging from the success of the very first adaptation of V.C. Andrews novels, it looks like this is going to be another success. It may be a twisted family drama but it gives viewers something new and gives them a different perspective when it comes to movies. Most definitely, this is a one-of-a-kind movie that you shouldn’t miss.

In fact, Lifetime viewers who have watched “Flowers in the Attic” were shocked when they watched the twisted family drama. In “Petals on the Wind,” the kids are now all grown up, have the ability to speak what’s on their minds and even get into intimate sex scenes. Yes, it is getting even crazier than before and we mean along the lines of domestic violence, pregnancy, miscarriage, marriage proposals and a car accident!

Heather Graham returns as Corrine Winslow. Other cast members include Wyatt Nash (“Pretty Little Liars”), Rose McIver (“Once Upon A Time”) and Ellen Burstyn.
