    The Glass Castle is a sad example of what could be a great movie being spoiled by "hollywood way" facilitation of an extremely poorly done script. The film had everything to be amazing, great interpretations, with Brie Larson and Wood Harrison and even Naomi Watts and Ella Anderson, all great actors that raising this movie a lot. A real story with a little bit similar than "Captain Fantastic 2016" that had everything to be amazing, but the script spoils the movie.

    You never know what someone else has been through. The circumstances that were endured are heartbreaking at times.

    The film makers did a fabulous job bringing the book to life. It is obvious the care and understanding they took to get the story just right.

    Worth the rental.

    I should start by noting that I've never read Jeannette Wells's autobiography, and had never even heard of her until I saw "The Glass Castle". The movie is interesting, as the protagonist remembers her unhappy childhood. But it becomes clear that despite the well-off life that she has as an adult, there's something unresolved.

    Brie Larson puts in a good performance as Jeannette, but the movie really belongs to Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts as her parents. The dad was abusive and the mom spent most of her time on art. Not surprisingly, the family didn't manage to stay in a house for long periods of time.

    I've read that the movie didn't fully capture the book's spirit. I guess that's always the case with movies. On its own, the movie is worth seeing. I recommend it. Watch for Iain Armitage (Shailene Woodley's character's son on "Big Little Lies" and young Sheldon on the spin off of "The Big Bang Theory").
