Take a Look:
Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, The Glass Castle is a remarkable story of unconditional love. Larson brings Jeannette Walls’s best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father (Harrelson), found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms.
The buzz about this book has been constant since it was released. I have a copy and haven’t gotten around to read it. I knew it was a powerful memoir and I was curious as how it would translate to screen. I swore to read it before I saw the movie, but that didn’t happen. My disclosure is that I’m reviewing this film without any consideration towards the book. The film- I loved it. As a parent it was hard to watch some of the scenes just due to the fact that I knew this was based on reality. It truly was a heartwrenching. The acting was incredible, even more than what you would expect from an all-star cast. That includes all of the child actors as well. This is a truly moving story considering that it is full of chaos and disorder. I felt a roller coaster of emotions as did the characters. It is worth the watch. Now- I’m going to get around to read that book! Stick around for the credits because you’ll get to see the actual Wall family.
