Tonight, Monday, December 6th, is the premiere of SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY’S a modern-day fairytale on Lifetime. Authors James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet have penned a delightful story that seems to be picture perfect story for adaptation to the screen. I for one find it hard to go back and read the book after I have seen a small or big screen version, what about you?
The Lifetime movie stars Alyssa Milano, who does double duty as the producer. Other members of the cast include: Stockard Channing, Eric Winter and Ivan Sergei. Have always liked Alyssa Milano from her days on CHARMED and I can see her in the role when I close my eyes. If you miss tonight’s premiere it will also air on Sat Dec 11 at 9 PM and Sun Dec 12 at 7 PM.
SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY’S What if your imaginary friend from childhood was your one true love? had me from the title. I have always been fond of the imagery of Tiffany’s the jewelry story and the little blue box the baubles are placed in when purchased. This was a book I knew I had to read.
Little Jane Claremont would have one day a week, Sundays, to spend with her very busy mother Vivian. The ritual for sunday was Ice Cream at St. Regis Hotel followed by a trip to Tiffany’s. Often her mother was pulled away with business or social obligations but Jane did not mind because she had the company of her imaginary friend Michael.
During Jane’s seventh birthday party Michael delivered the news that he had to leave. It seems that all imaginary friends have to leave to take care of other boys and girls that need them just as Jane had needed Michael. Jane was devastated by the news but part of the departure process includes erasing the memories of the child in regards to their imaginary friend. Years later when Jane was now a woman she believes she spotted Michael, but how could this be?
