Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient, 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.

    I give the overall movie 4 stars because I read the book and the movie just doesn't compare. The movie skipped on so many parts of her life that I thought was really important to truly know her story and feel what she went through. If you're planning to watch the movie or already have, please read the book. The book truly sucked me into her life and it was like I was in her shoes and could feel her pain and happiness. However, the movie did pick up towards end and made you feel something. It's definetely a much watch, just as much as the book is a must read!
  • GREAT Movie

    I watched the movie first, not realizing I bought the book for my son’s college English class. So of course I had to read the book as well. The books is definitely more detail of the deep & disturbing childhood they grew up in. I then had to youtube Jeanette Walls, watched many videos of interviews & there’s a part were she states how she wrote the book in 6wks but spent 5yrs rewriting certain parts of the book because she wanted to stay true to what happened. I love how she says that although her dad never built them the Glass Castle he gave her much more...“Hope & A Dream for the Future”

    This movie was thought provoking, encouraging, fun, and adventurous. I was laughing and crying all together. Brie Larson, Ella Anderson, Naomi Watts, and Woody Harrelson have outdone themselves! I recommend this movie to all.

    Great book ,great movie!!!! I’ve been very moved by a great and talented cast !!!! Every one played very well . I really liked it.
  • Good on it’s own, nothing like the book.

    By Jessnicholegeorge
    I love the cast and the movie on its own would be fine, but following the book; it’s just too far off. Parts are inner twined and changed, much too much is left out; and the book lends a much better light into how hard of a life the Walls kids had, where he movie really makes light of that.
  • So happy!

    I will always love the book. However, the movie is just as amazing! I was so happy when I saw who the actresses and actors were. Well done!

    I have read the book 3 times and finally got around to watching the movie. It was different from the book in many ways, but was still well worth the watch. Will watch it again someday soon!

    Great acting in this intense movie. This movie takes you away from everything for 2 hours and is able to make a better person out of you as it has so many moments that make you reflect on your own life. Brilliant!
