Love somehow shines through 'The Glass Castle'Any parents of young children – or anyone thinking of hearing the pitter-patter of little feet – are urged to go to their local movie theater and see "The Glass Castle". "The Glass Castle" is steeped in crazy love, but love nonetheless.Walls created a sensation when she wrote about her destitute and nomadic youth, a childhood of hunger and privation at the hands of a pair of idiosyncratic parents who shunned schools, authority, capitalism and regular bill payments.In Rose Mary Walls they have an artistic, bohemian mother (Naomi Watts) and a fiery, charismatic dad in Rex Walls (Harrelson), who promises to build a fantastic glass castle for the family to live in.The exact moment dad goes from offbeat quirky to dangerous is never clear but Harrelson's descent into a moody, angry, lying – but one always loving – Walls is riveting.In the face of a horrific childhood, the Walls kids are fiercely protective of each other, as expected.
