“The Glass Castle” is based on the autobiography of Jeanette Walls. The book was #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list for weeks; the film promises to be a winner too. It traces the tumultuous life of a family through the 1960’s and into the 1970’s, with a brilliant, charismatic, and drunken father, and a mother more dedicated to her art than her family. The children survive through the early nomadic days of life in the Southwest, and struggle as the family falls deeper into poverty, eventually moving back with the father’s poor family in a West Virginia mining town. The movie stars Woody Harrelson, Brie Larson, and Naomi Watts.
The film will last approximately two hours.
Free and open to the public, it will be shown in the lower level meeting room, which is easily accessible through the Library’s lower entrance, to the right of the main entrance.
