The Glass House

Critics Consensus

Due to obvious plot twists and foreshadowing, The Glass House fails to thrill. By the end, it degenerates into ludicrousness.

Movie Info

After the parents of Ruby (Leelee Sobieski) and her younger brother, Rhett (Trevor Morgan), are killed in a car crash, their parents' best friends, Erin and Terry Glass (Diane Lane, Stellan Skarsgard), become their guardians. The children hear promises of a world of opulence and California fun -- all they have to do is move into the Glasses' gated house. Before very long, though, Ruby suspects that Erin and Terry may not be the ideal guardians they seemed to be.

Audience Reviews for The Glass House

  • Jan 22, 2019
    There was really no intrigue in The Glass House which is missing a pretty fundamental step when you're making a mystery/thriller.

    The psychological thriller The Glass House has an interesting set up, but fails to deliver any true terror. The plot follows two children, Ruby and Rhett Baker, who are orphaned and taken in by their parent's friends, the Glasses, but before long Rudy starts to suspect that the Glasses have a sinister reason for having taken them in and could be behind her parent's deaths. The cast has some impressive talent and features Leelee Sobieski, Stellan Skarsgard, Diane Lane, and Bruce Dern. However, the script is a little weak and leaves too much ambiguity to sustain much tension or suspense. And before long, the story falls into formula and becomes pretty predictable. There's some mystery to The Glass House, but it's rather underwhelming and lacks real peril and danger.

    Fairly predictable, it's easy to guess what goes on in the film with it's heavy foreshadowing and the conventional plot. Another one of those rich people problems film featuring good actors in distress, very much the same as the films we've all seen before.

    An orphaned teen and her brother live with a sinister family friend after their parents die. Aside from the sheer joy of watching Stellan Skarsgard be bad, there is nothing unique or new about this thriller, which is as predictable as it is lame. Leelee Sobieski is a boring heroine, and Diane Lane is woefully underused. Overall, I have very little to say about this film because the film has very little to say.
