Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, THE GLASS CASTLE is a remarkable story of unconditional love. Oscar (R) 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.

Poignant 'The Glass Castle' is a solid drama about family life

Based on a memoir by Jeannette Walls, “The Glass Castle” is a well-crafted drama about the comforts and insecurities of family life. The film reunites Oscar winner Larson (“Room”) with director Destin Daniel Cretton, who also helmed her breakout film, “Short Term 12.” Working from a screenplay that he co-wrote with Andrew Lanham (“The Shack”), Cretton skillfully handles the film’s dual time frames to deliver a story that’s undeniably poignant but refreshingly free of cheap sentimentality. 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.

“The Glass Castle” is dramatically sound.
