In case you haven't heard, it's Petals on the Wind weekend here at the blog. So instead of indie news, this week it's all about POTW news. What can you expect from the adaptation that airs tomorrow night?
At least, that's what the trailer indicates. Of course there's more than sex in the film. The trailers and stills are very limited, but to me it looks as though Corinne's role has been somewhat extended for the Lifetime movie. I could be wrong, of course, but since the entire book is told from Cathy's perspective the reader sees very little of Corinne throughout. Contrarywise, Heather Graham is peppered throughout the trailers.
She's also at the forefront of most of the stills Lifetime has released. However, Rose McIver (who plays Cathy) has talked a little about her role in the film. Read her comments at The Wrap.
We already know that the timeline will be advanced for the movie, and Paul Sheffield's role seems to be cut completely. And as I pointed out in the first V.C. Andrew remake Lifetime attempted, the green dress won't be making an appearance. But Cathy and Chris look perfect for their roles, and Ellen Burstyn is back so how can that be bad?
Follow me on Twitter Monday night, and we'll watch Petals on the Wind together. I'll be live-tweeting the movie and, as always, pointing out anything that deviates from the book.
To celebrate POTW weekend, I'm giving away the Deck of Lies series for free. Click the image below to get Books 1 through 4 in Kindle or Nook format, and get embroiled into a whole new set of family problems: deceit, adultery, murder...and kidnapping.
