Instead of doing separate posts for all four movies, I am doing a short summary for each of them. I watched them a few weeks ago. I haven’t read the books. They are written by Andrew Neiderman who is writing under the name V.C. Andrews. The movies have: Raechelle Banno, Gil Bellows, Karina Banno, Sam Duke, Ty Wood, Mason Temple, Crystal Fox, Bob Frazer, and Naomi Judd in it.
Big Warning: there is some sad parts and hints of incest.
In this movie Ruby Landry is love with Paul. Her grandmother is a voodoo healer. Her grandmother is sick and she tells Ruby that Paul is her half brother. So Ruby tries to break up with Paul. Then her grandmother tells her who her father is and that she has a twin sister. When her grandmother dies, she goes to find her father and she lives with them. Ruby’s twin makes it hard to live with, so Ruby goes to a voodoo madam and does a curse on her twin. Her twin gets in a car accident and ends up in a wheelchair.
PEARL IN THE MIST
In this movie Mr. Dumas decides it would be best for the twins to go to a boarding school. Ruby makes friends with a girl, but it is short lived. Then she meets Louis who becomes her friend. Beau (Ruby’s boyfriend who was her twin’s boy toy) shows up and Ruby becomes pregnant. She gets kicked out of the school. She ends up going back home. She has the baby and names her Pearl.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
In this movie, Paul shows up again and they get married. Ruby gets word that her father had died so she goes to the funeral. She finds out her twin marries Beau. She also learns her stepmother is getting married to another man. Some time passes and then Ruby’s twin gets really sick. Ruby wants to be with Beau so they decide to switch identities of the twins. Ruby becomes her twin. Then Paul slowly declines. He thinks Giselle is actually Ruby. Then Paul dies. There is a custody battle that happens and in the end Ruby keeps Pearl.
In this movie, some time passes and Ruby has three kids. Two boys and Pearl. Pearl wants to be a doctor. She doesn’t believe in voodoo. One of Ruby’s boys gets bit by a snake and Beau falls and hits his head. Ruby goes to see who is behind the curse. In the end, they find out it was Paul’s mother who put the curse on Ruby. They do end the curse.
I sorta liked these movies.
