THE GLASS CASTLE. Based on the memoir of the same name by
Jeanette Walls, The Glass Castle is the story of a young girl (Brie
Larson) who comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist
nomads. The mother (Naomi Watts) is an eccentric artist who hated the
idea of domesticity and did not want to take on the work of raising a
family. Meanwhile, the father (Woody Harrelson), when sober, was a
creative, inspiring teacher to his children, but when drunk, was
dishonest and destructive. The siblings must learn to take care of
themselves as their responsibility-averse, free-spirit parents both
inspire and inhibit them.
