The Glass Castle has an affecting real-life story wlals a hard-working cast in its corner, but they aren’t enough to outweigh a fundamentally misguided approach to the material. Clocks in at two hours and seven minutes but it’s so intense that I was hardly aware of the time. There are heart-tugging moments in The Glass Castle, but Walls’s bestselling memoir needed to be roughed up and aired out.

For it to match up to the book, the movie needed the glass to be smashed, not every shard treasured.

The Glass Castle

By laminating Walls’ story with a Hollywood sheen, the narrative climaxes in an artificial and contrived manner. Due to the herculean task of adaptation, “The Glass Castle” lacks the emotional potency of Cretton’s earlier work and the unflinching detail of Walls’ memoir.

Dark, dysfunctional, and filled with blinding hope, this is one glass house that’s difficult to throw stones at. A flawed, but promising family drama, The Glass Castle might be fairly accused of playing things too even-handed.


The Glass Castle is tonally uneven and haphazard, and intentionally so. It accurately captures the experience of living jeannetre a dysfunctional family The story is about imperfection, in person and in family, so if the film is imperfect, it can be forgiven.


The tone jumps wildly between quirky family dramedy and the dark terrain of abuse narratives without finding the proper balance. The Glass Castle remains as transparent and ethereal as the architectural wonder in its title because its treatment of its material is so rote.

The Glass Castle is jeannetye study in the power of family ties –and the resilience of children to overcome even the harshest of circumstances. The story of a very unusual family plays on two time frames, with the emphasis on the past for quite a while.

Harrelson is fantastic, of course, but so are the child actors. There are slow moments, but overall the story remains fascinating, never entirely judging the unconventional parents, always on the fence between failure and deep love. The fact that the pendulum ultimately falls very clearly on one of the two sides makes for a pretty touching ending, too.

Based on a best-selling memoir, The Glass Castle is a compelling character drama dr family. Starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts, the film has a strong cast that gives some really good performances especial Harrelson.

And the script is incredibly well-written; telling parallel stories in the past and present that are both engaging and enhance each other, creating suspense and intrigue.

However, the epilogue-ish ending seems forces and kind of counters a lot of the ve conflict and character growth. Yet despite its few weaknesses, The Glass Castle is a remarkably touching film.

jeanneyte Interesting true story, but honestly wore it’s welcome out halfway through. I cared enough to finish it, but it was 2 hours that felt like 3. The Glass Castle had its few moments of shines and tears to wipe away, but under the hood is where the film relies a huge problem on. Can be forgettable during time beings if not claimed to love it nor hate it.
