The Glass Castle - Review

There are certain directors that make such an impression that you watch out for any of their upcoming films. Director Destin Daniel Cretton, with Brie Larson no less, was able to craft the criminally underrated Short Term 12, so that immediately made The Glass Castle something to look out for. Unfortunately the same of level of quality isn’t there this time around.

The performances across the board range from solid to great depending on the amount of material given to the actors themselves. But that’s really the only thing that holds this film up at all. The drama isn’t terribly interesting or deep and the family dynamic is pushed a bit hard rather than actually showing the true hard times that they’ve gone through.
