Horrible.....

If you can't sleep and are in desperate need of sleep, put in this movie, and within 15 minutes, you will be out like a light.....

Thoughtful and beautifully acted.

The Glass Castle is one of those films that stirs up all the dirty messy bits from an abusive and neglectful childhood. It also reminds us that even in the middle of anger, pain and regret, that there is a form of beauty within it all.

The book by Jeanette Walls on which this film is based is one of my "Top 10" books. I connected with this story and could not put it down. The film is based on a memoir from the author's own personal story growing up with her three siblings and neglectful dysfunctional parents. Her father was an alcoholic, brilliant and yet incapable of providing for the family. Walls mother was a talented artist who stayed with her husband despite the unstable and impoverished lifestyle her and her children endured.

The dual story line throughout the movie bounces back and forth from Jeanette's childhood to the present day where she is a successful writer engaged and living in NY.

Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson were beautifully cast as Jeanette's parents. Their chemistry on screen was completely believable and realistic. Harrelson rocked his role as a complex, troubled father and husband. Ella Anderson as the young Jeanette was brilliant.

It goes without saying of course, but if the viewer has experienced neglect or abuse in their own life or witnessed it in the lives of others close to you, this film may be a trigger for you.

The emotion is there, the execution is not however..

A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty. The Glass Castle could have been an amazing movie but in the end i was disappointed with the overall plot and characters of the film especially Woody Harrelson's and Naomie Watts from one moment their fighting and hitting each other and then everything is fine? I mean the film has characters that are hard to follow or even care for. Brie Larson is great tho but the damage had already been established and by the end of it i was disappointed and at times even bored with the movie. (4/10)
