2014 ***1/2 90 mins.
The second, and best, story in the Dollanganger saga, Petals on the Wind strays quite a bit from its source novel, but it still works very well. Great casting choices all around, bringing Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn back from Flowers in the Attic, and adding Rose McIver and Wyatt Nash as Cathy and Christopher. Petals on the Wind is the most active of all the Dollanganger stories, as we follow the characters on many adventures in their lives, culminating in a confrontation at Foxworth Hall.
