Movie Diary 8/8/2017

The Glass Castle (Destin Daniel Cretton, 2017). Another big, authentic performance from Woody Harrelson, as a chaotic father who shapes the life of a long-suffering daughter (Brie Larson). A better movie than Cretton’s Short Term 12, although there are some shortcuts – the flashback structure, for instance – that seem easy and conventional. Based on the bestselling memoir by Jeannette Walls. (full review 8/11)
