'The Glass Castle' Friday 26th October (M) mature content Drama, True Story & Biography 120 mins

Starring: Brie Larson, Naomi Watts, Woody Harrelson (3 Billboards)
Brie Larson and Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton re-team for this drama based on Jeannette Walls' best-selling memoir.
A young girl is raised in a dysfunctional family who are constantly on the run from the FBI. Living in poverty, she comes of age guided by her drunkard, ingenious father (Woody Harrelson) who distracts her with magical stories to keep her mind off the family's dire state, and her selfish, nonconformist mother (Naomi Watts) who has no intention of raising a family, along with her three siblings. Together, they fend for each other as they mature on the unorthodox journey that is their family life.

What is so astonishing about Jeannette Walls, the author of the book that the film is based on, is not just that she had the guts and tenacity and intelligence to get out, but that she describes her parents with such deep affection and generosity. Hers is a story of triumph against all odds, but also a tender, moving tale of unconditional love in a family that despite its profound flaws gave her the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms. The story is remarkable and the performances of the cast superb.

After the 8-15pm screening we will be showing the interview with Jeanette Walls which convinced me to show this film as part of the FLICKS programme)
