I watched V.C. Andrews’ Heaven yesterday. I taped it when it was on Lifetime. It is based on a book series by V.C. Andrews. No, I haven’t read the books. I have read the dollanganger book series. I just wasn’t interested in reading another book series by her. The movie has Annalise Basso, Chris McNally, Julie Benz, Chris William Martin, Samantha Coughlan, Madeline Hirvonen, and Christina Jastrzembska in it.
Warning: there is some sex scenes.
In this movie, a girl named Heaven finds out from her grandmother that her biological mother died when she was born. She is one of five kids and they are poor. Her grandmother mentions that her mother’s family is rich. Her stepmother loses her baby. Then her grandmother dies. Her stepmother goes crazy and leaves. So her father decides to give away the kids. Heaven goes to live with a couple who seems nice at first. The woman (Kitty) makes Heaven clean the house. She is very jealous of Heaven’s friends and family. Later on Kitty discovers that she is really sick so they move into her mother’s house. Kitty’s mother is the same way toward Heaven. Heaven does sleep with her adopted father who is also very jealous of her friends and family. Heaven decides to find her mother’s family.
I have read that there are differences between the book and movie, but I did like the movie. Next week I’m watching Dark Angel which is the second movie and book.
