"Glassland" took alcoholism on with a rare honesty; which is appreciated for a topic so many films have tried to tackle. What made this film different and raw was the perspective from which the film was told. Focused on a grown son caring for his alcoholic mother and developmentally disabled brother, the film plays on his own delay, as well as the pain brought on by a parent who was never fully present. The movie stung in a lot of ways, not because I have had to deal with alcoholic parents, but I know those who have. I now fully grasp why some say they don't drink and question a little less about their reasoning.
Thanks for entering my world,
