What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Jamal-Dean Grootboom Fragile life in glass castle.
Karla Janse van Vuuren Komplekse gesinsverhoudings roerend uitgebeeld.
Mark Kennedy The Glass Castle is steeped in crazy love, but love nonetheless.
Jim Judy While I was never bored, I was never as fully engaged as I likely should and could have been.
Tomatometer The Glass Castle has an affecting real-life story and a hard-working cast in its corner, but they aren’t enough to outweigh a fundamentally misguided approach to the material.
