The healing blooms of Thornfield Flower Farm convey secret messages, shroud deep-held pain and come to embody an emotional comforter for Alice Hart, who, after losing both of her parents in a fire at the age of nine, grows up under the careful protection of her steely grandmother June. When you watch The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart to peel back the petals of this Prime Video drama, however, there's something rotten at the family's heart.
The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart premieres Friday (August 4), at 12:01 a.m. ET on Prime Video.
The seven-part limited series, which stars Alycia Debnam-Carey and Alyla Browne as Alice, and Sigourney Weaver as June, is based on Holly Ringland's 2018 bestseller of the same name. It's a novel almost from a bygone era which intertwines the murky history of the Hart family with the gorgeous wildflowers they continually surround themselves with.
Metaphors and innuendo can communicate some things that words cannot, or at least the things that Alice, June and her tragic late mother can't bring themselves to say, but it's an uneasy fallacy, and one that shatters as soon as Alice relaxes her guard.
However, with terrible suffering comes the opportunity for Alice to break free of her grandmother's yoke and discover who she really is. Here's everything to know about how to watch The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart. Scroll down for the trailer.
