Ready to Join?

Let’s watch the film “ The Glass Castle “ - a Protected content biographical film based on Jeannette Walls' Protected content memoir published as a book. Thus you could also read the book if you like. Please only register if you are 100% sure That you will join the chat. Thanks.

RottenTomatoes say: “ Based on a memoir, four siblings must learn to take care of themselves as their responsibility-averse, free-spirit parents both inspire and inhibit them. When sober, the children's brilliant and charismatic father captured their imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. Based on a memoir, four siblings must learn to take care of themselves as their responsibility-averse, free-spirit parents both inspire and inhibit them. When sober, the children's brilliant and charismatic father captured their imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Meanwhile, their mother abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn't want to take on the work of raising a family.”

The plan: Everybody individually watches the film and we will have a chat about it afterwards. The play takes about 1 hour 30 min, thus please start at 19:00 if you like to watch the play on Sunday before the chat. We would have a chat about the play at 21:00 (German winter time, UCT). via zoom. As usual, I will send the zoom link like before to those signed up.

Looking forward to seeing you, Marie.
