My late grandfather always said that every human life is much more interesting even the most exciting and quality feature film and the history of some people so is required to be heard. The life story of a journalist Gannett of walls certainly one of such.

The events of the filmmaker Destin of Cretton refer to the past the deep walls and tell an amazing and truly rich history of her family. Telling the story of growing up as not only the walls, but and her brother and sisters who are forced to move from space a place not having a permanent roof over head and friends living from hand to mouth and in abject poverty through the garbage in search of food residue and heating the house and their rooms found in the forest tree branches. But that does not losing heart, being under impression of the promises of the father of construction and also planning a large and beautiful Glass castle, which so not has gained flesh on the words of the head of the family.

The creators of the film very tenderly and carefully treated with memoirs of the walls and really just moved the pages of her life on the wide screen. Great developing history on the example of the relationship between father and daughter in which the daughter is much older and wiser than his father — an alcoholic, a slacker, a dreamer and a real child in the depths of his soul. This justifying any reluctance how much of the failure of Rex and his wife rose to provide care and required education of their children. However, despite the alarming expectations, telling the story of a difficult childhood obviously less cruel and harsh than it had to be really.

For this way, the film Destin of Cretton gives the impression of not only the strongest of human drama, but some sort of tale. Perhaps it is around this laying the main moral compass, and a landmark of this strip about the fact that there is nothing more important in this life than family. Whatever she hasn was. Perhaps their child it was the hardest test, but it also was filled with happy moments and love my parents don't matter what. What gives the impression of multi-layered, deep and thought-provoking picture that perfectly embodies the Director of this tape is Destina Ketonom.

Great picture showing yourself with "Short term 12" Director of this tape is Destin Cretton once more strongly raised in my eyes as one of the strongest Directors-playwrights of modern cinema. Removing a very vital, natural, deep and strong picture which is easy playing on the strings of the soul and literally hurt for alive. The awe, those strongest genuine emotion and sincerity that, under the impression of which break away from the events on the events screen is simply impossible.

I definitely talented and able to play of young actors. However, the creators of this tape. this lucky enough. All children actors in led Ella Anderson did an awesome job with your task for the screen. Even involuntarily replaying far more experienced Naomi watts, bree Larson and the entire adult cast of the picture. Larson to in again proved to be in as strong a dramatic actress.

The Queen of the same picture of course it is woody Harrelson. Harrelson got a very contradictory, complicated, controversial and ambiguous character, which can safely and without any exaggeration be called one of the strongest role in the career of the artist. Turning every appearance of the artist on screen a real master class of dramatic games. More than deserving of Oscars and other prestigious film awards for your game.

Glass lock — it is unfairly disadvantaged in the award season and without any exaggeration one of the strongest pictures that I have ever seen. Very deep, vital, emotionally rich and a strong family and human drama, which is easily touched to deeply able to teach its audience outside depends on his age.

Surprisingly strong, can you say gorgeous family drama. Without nasty corny vulgarity, so common for an American movie. And without lead dull grayness characteristic of the so-called American independent cinema.

The film tells the story of an unusual American family. In principle, if formally, like nothing radically new: the children in the family "antisocial elements"... Films on a similar theme not too little. But this film differs significantly from the similar pictures. Typically, these antisocial parents — people, frankly, a little attractive. Well, like clear: poor kids... And all that. Here before us a somewhat different story. Very personal indeed, because the plot of this film is based on real events. In the plot — childhood memories of the famous American journalist of Gannett walls.

In the center of the plot — complex relationships daughter and father. The father of the protagonist — nature is extraordinary and bright, though, and highly controversial... a man must to achieve great things in this life, but he deliberately chose for himself the path asocial nomad, no empty pocket without a permanent roof over head and this the choice becomes fate for his entire family: wife and four children.

The father is misusing alcohol, children often live from hand to mouth, the mother — the artist is a loser too, not provides children with the proper attention that one of episodes almost ends in tragedy. And then we can't denounce these people... in Spite of everything, the parents of the main character brought before us by people in something deeply sympathetic and unwittingly sympathetic. The girl's father not deprived of pedagogical talent. How many parents e.g. "a prosperous family" so sincerely communicate with their children?.. Parents Gannett — take a lot are children, and perhaps in this is rooted the cause of their appeal. If the teacher does not the little boy, then he never will be able to pave the way for the heart of the child, and the father of Gannett it could even its ugly deeds in most alcohol abuse, not can destroy the sincere bright he invested in the soul of his daughter. And already deathbed, after a painful family discord, he hear her words of recognition: "do I look like you happy."

Importantly, the attracts imagine it. a strange collection — is a family of real people. You can find in these people plenty of flaws, but one is the dignity outweighs all — they live, are real, are what they are. This people of  the"red book"... From books of childhood memories... And that would say the guardianship and the juvenile justice system, I sure many children would prefer to parents would be something like the parents of the main character of this film, and not lifeless-the right of parents of the famous books by Astrid Lindgren.

Beautiful business woman skillfully making small talk. Sitting in front of respectable people laugh at her jokes, because today it well as ever. Suddenly, one of the audience asked who work of her parents. A relaxed smile suddenly becomes taut. The girl is obviously struggling with the desire to look away, but in the end, takes himself in hand. Pushes quite plausible lie. Mother paints, and the father of the improve technology of processing of coal. Guests are more than satisfied, and in the soul scratching cat. With other hand, don't say in plain text that her parents are homeless?!

I want to build a house dreams. Not hesitate to your father, I never throw words to the wind. See, we already romp through the country search of a better place for the pouring of the Foundation. Leaving one home and move to the other, to get an idea of the ideal home. We do it so long I have drew the plan of the first two floors and it is half the battle. If we spend the night under the open sky, then this for in order to know the taste of freedom. The whole point of this was to it! We belong to yourself, each other and we have a dream on all. What you still need to be happy?!

Food, clothing, roof over head to a doctor and the opportunity to learn. All that is called the parent caring for the child. Love's not enough, if it does not responsibility. No liability, there is a fault. Beautiful business woman in the restaurant had every right to blame their parents for that is a normal life for themselves and their children they have chosen the world of illusions. For what not being free romantic, it is enjoyed in full nomadic way of life with an overnight stay in abandoned houses and wash in a public pool. Yes, with two loving and unconventional parents girl with early childhood, was forced to answer for itself. Not is brought her to success!

It is unclear how with this connivance with the parents, not the elementary school children are so succeeded life. They are not only broken, continuing to eke out an existence in a crumbling shack, but got a profession and come to complete well-being. If the story is not was based on real events, the writers could be completely to blame romantic reverie. However, whether a beautiful business woman is to blame your family if you through the harsh trials of the past it and became a beautiful and business? Attempt to untangle this a causal relationship is not crowned with success. The only possible solution was a complete forgiveness, and a sense of nostalgia whitewash and not the sweet memories.

Only here confusing all still, to forgive his past it means to understand. Despite all the shortcomings of the lifestyle of the nomads, founders of up to his last romanticize, contradicting himself and common sense. The folly of the parents seems to be kompensiruet love, and lack of education — his father's memory and imagination. However ridiculous irresponsibility to attempt to pass off as the triumph of the spiritual over the material. It is not surprising that in the end and it appears clearly, that shadow casts that whether branched oak with deep roots in family values, then whether Cumulus cloud, gas-filled of empty dreams.
