A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads, with a mother who’s an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.

The only reason the appalling ending doesn't soil the entire film is because everything else is pretty close to spot on, especially in terms of casting. This might indeed by Woody Harrelson's best performance, at least as good as his performance as Larry Flynt, and Brie Larson has such a long career most performers would kill for. Frequently harrowing, but that "sympathize with your abuser" closer frustrated me.
Mungkin di suatu pesta, Deston Cretton & Matt Ross pernah mendiskusikan skrip film ini dalam kondisi mabuk, lalu tanpa sadar dan mengabari satu sama lain, keduany mengadaptasinya ke film. Matt Ross ngebuat Captain Fantastic, Destin ngebuat The Glass Castle. Bahkan si mungil Shree Crooks yg udh tampil di Capt Fantastic, nongol lagi di sini. Dan andai saja Woody msk nominee oscar krna film ini, psti dia sudah menang.
Pretty good film. With this and 3 Billboards, Harrelson is doing some of the best work of his career. Larson is great, and is able to show off her range a bit in the lead role. Watts is good as the starving artist abuse sympathizing mother. Some of the dialogue is heavy handed and the direction uninspired, which hampers what couldve been a great film. Just good. 3 stars
