Overview

This teen psychological thriller marks the feature film debut of respected television producer and director Daniel Sackheim. Leelee Sobieski stars as Ruby Baker, a high school student who is devastated when her parents Grace and Dave Rita Wilson and Michael O'Keefe are killed in a tragic car accident. With her younger brother Rhett Trevor Morgan, Ruby is sent to live with the legal guardians chosen by her parents, their best friends Terry Stellan Skarsgård and Erin Glass Diane Lane. The Glasses live in an opulent Malibu mansion where Ruby and Rhett are promised all of the finest luxuries money can buy and a lavish new rich-kid lifestyle. Before long, however, Ruby begins to suspect that her new caretakers are not what they appear on the surface and that the couple's financial woes may force them to harm her or Rhett in order to cash in on their sizable life insurance policies. The Glass House was written by Wesley Strick, screenwriter of Cape Fear 1991, Wolf 1994, and The Saint 1997.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Up-and-coming star Leelee Sobieski makes her strongest showing to date in this taut thriller, which boasts an outstanding cast and cunningly crafted situations. After the death of their parents in a car crash, Ruby Baker Sobieski and her brother Rhett Trevor Morgan move in with family friends Terry and Erin Glass Stellan Skarsgard and Diane Lane, respectively. Shortly thereafter, Ruby learns that her guardians could be after her substantial inheritance -- and, with the knowledge of the family attorney Bruce Dern, might have even engineered the fatal crash. This premise offers ample opportunities for melodrama of the more florid stripe, and director Daniel Sackheim enthusiastically rises to the occasion. He also flavors the suspense with a soupçon of sexual menace: Sobieski appears in a variety of tight-fitting outfits and bathing suits, and we get the distinct impression that Skarsgard wants more from her than money. His performance is first rate, as is that of Lane, who plays his drug-addled wife with just enough sensitivity and tenderness to make the character sympathetic. Fine trouping by all the principal players, in fact, is primarily what makes Glass House superior to the myriad run-of-the-mill nail-biters it superficially resembles. Director Sackheim is interviewed for the DVD, and he also provides a feature-length commentary. Other extras include deleted scenes, cast filmographies, production notes, and trailers.

    Favorite Movie

    Oh my gosh! I love this movie so much! It has a lot of twists and turns. If you just read the back of the box and put the movie down, I feel sorry for you. This is one movie I could watch again and again. There was some great acting in this film, and a lot of places that made your heart beat like crazy! Ruby and Rhett remind me so much of me and my brother. My brother would be totally clueless in a situation like that, only caring about videogames (Rhett). And I would be the suspisous one, trying to figure things out (Ruby).

    WAY!!! better than I thought it would be.

    I got this movie out just to see something on a Saterday night and I wasn't expecting much from it, boy I was wrong.... This was a really really good movie, one of the best movies I've seen. It stars Leelee Sobieski( Never Been Kissed, Deep Impact) and she was really good in this. My favourite character was the Boy played by Trevor Morgan( Jurassic Park 3, The Patriot) because it was cool to relate to someone my age in that situation and he played his part really well. Over all I recomend this to enyone and I'm defintly going to by this movie when it's on DVD. GREAT MOVIE!!!

    Great Movie

    This was a very suspensful movie that kept my attention all throughtout it. Some parts seemed to be predictable then the plot would take a turn and end up nothing like what was expected.
