Talk about irresponsibility in the light of what you may call bad parenting. Four siblings struggle to adjust and adapt to their parents risk averse decisions.

Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who also directed Just Mercy and Short Term 12. The latter which starrs the heart-warming Brie Larson who also is the main focus of The Glass Castle and also starred in Captain Marvel and in lights of his work with Just Mercy which also starred Micheal B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx, drawing an Oscar buzz in the academy one would accept Cretton’s ability to deliver and The Glass Castle is no exception.

Brie Larson who has bagged numerous awards such as Academy awards for best actress and Golden Globe award for Best Actress does a fine work of self-revelation and bonding as seen in the in her popular movie, Room.


Suffering from a particularly stubborn and alcoholic father which is actually the adaptation of a true story, Jeanette Walls (Brie Larson) and her other three siblings must find a way to escape the depths of despair their father has chosen to take with them along with him.

Woody Harrelson who played the role of the father (Rex) is portrayed as a wild card with a timer set to go off unexpectedly. The Glass Castle borders with the question of personal freedom and the grace to live the best life, this preached by Jeanette’s father to his children hence the occasional bouncing from one location to the other and sleeping under the bare night skies and also due to financial issues.
