The Glass Castle

Last edited Fri Oct 12, 2018, 03:00 PM - Edit history (1)

Based the the true story by Jeanette Walls, the film couldn't begin to capture all the details from this great best selling book. I loved the book. Was the book better? You bet. It's a hard story to say the least. However, the movie was able to capture the story and tell it pretty much like it was. This is a memoir of a truly dysfunctional family. Despite the severe neglect, poverty and craziness, the resilience of the children will astound you. Woody Harrelson is awesome as Rex Walls. Brie Larson (Rex's daughter, Jeanette) was outstanding and Naomi Watts as Rosemary (the mother) was wonderful. They show original pictures of the family at the end of the movie during the credits.
This movie is definitely worth a watch. Streaming on Amazon Prime

2. I liked it too!

I read the book first. You are right about Woody Harrelson. He's a terrific actor.
