There are stories that deserve to be told and the life of the journalist Jeannete Walls undoubtedly one of them. With a difficult childhood and a relationship full of ups and downs with his parents, his reports are impressive and shocking, transforming The Glass Castle in a voracious reading. Jeannete begins by narrating her first memory, when she was just three years old and caught fire while making hot dogs. She already cooked alone at such a young age for two reasons: her mother encouraged her to be brave and independent, while hating to waste time cooking. Only then can you get a sense of what to expect from this work, and this ambiguity in the behavior of parents is what dictates the entire narrative. In a romanticized style, Jeannete Walls narrates his autobiography and explains how Rex and Rose Mary Walls raised their 4 children in the midst of difficulties.

This movie is not easy to watch is what I'm trying to say. But it is rewarding if you are into dramas and really good performances. The lines are blurred between good and bad, and what parenting is about and how or what you should learn from the usually most important people in your life. Woody Harrelson gives a powerhouse performance, which elevates but is also enhanched through the other great performances. As the saying goes, what doesn't kill you So if you like slow moving drama with a distraught time line, this is the one you may like.
