Film Description

Based on a memoir, four siblings must learn to take care of themselves as their responsibility–averse, free-spirit parents both inspire and inhibit them. When sober, the children’s brilliant and charismatic father captures their imagination, teaching them physics, geology and how to embrace live fearlessly. But when he drinks, a dishonest and destructive persona emerges. Meanwhile their mother abhors the idea of domesticity and doesn’t want to take on the work of raising a family.


Critical Notes 

"Dark, dysfunctional, filled with blinding hope, this is one glass house that’s difficult to throw stones at”
- Scott Marks, San Diego Reader


" a moving and beautifully acted adaptation of Jeanette Walls’ memoir features a career-best performance by Woody Harrelson who is sensational here."
- Pete Hammond, Hollywood Daily
