Storyline Heading
A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - While young children figure prominently in this fact-based drama, it is strictly for adults, with its mature subject matter including molestation, alcohol abuse, and language. While Brie Larson is top billed and plays the main character, she shares the role with two younger actresses, and thus co-stars Naomi Watts and especially Woody Harrelson ultimately have more screen time. Adult women are the target audience.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average But the result is a film that never quite clicks tonally and doesn't do justice to its harrowing central story.

USA Today Full Review
Average The Glass Castle offers up a movie clan to beat in terms of complete dysfunction, though the brutal and heart-wrenching film is in its own way just as much of a mess.

NY Post Full Review
Average it's impossible not to just say it: You're better off reading the book.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average ... the oscillations between sociological horror and misty-eyed sentimentality call attention to how meticulously the film arranges its emotional punches.
