Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, The Glass Castle is a remarkable story of unconditional love. Oscar-winner Brie 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 (Woody Harrelson), found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms.
Insider’s tip: “Clocks in at two hours and seven minutes but it’s so intense that I was hardly aware of the time” (Rex Reed, New York Observer). Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, adds: “Harrelson … thoroughly understands Rex from the inside, immersing himself in the role of this charismatic man in a way that allows us to see both how compelling and how dangerous a parent he was.” Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “Larson turns in an engaging performance as a woman uncertain about just who she wants to be. But Harrelson comes close to upstaging her, imbuing Rex with a bold and intriguing complexity.” Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter: “Whatever its imbalances and flaws, the movie is sure to strike an emotional chord with the book’s many fans as well as newcomers to the remarkable tale.”
