But the young actress who steals the show is Ella Anderson who plays a 12 year-old version of Jeanette. Tremendous work. I’d like to see her again in more work that allows her to get the same amount of range she fills Jeanette with: anger, frustration, joy, happiness, sadness, melancholy, and at times depression. All of that is used at that at breakneck speed as she has to change on a dime depending on what the scene is calling for.
— MOVIE-BLOGGER
First among equals is Ella Anderson as the sweetly determined young Jeannette, a girl forced to grow up long before her parents ever did.
— THE STAR
Ella Anderson is a name we should learn, and watch out for in the very near future
— AWARDS CIRCUT
The true stand-out of the film, and one to watch, is Ella Anderson as the young Jeanette. She’s really the beating heart of the drama
— THE PLAYLIST
Anderson especially is a revelation, quite frequently stealing the scene from her co-stars
— BIG FAN BOY
Each actress in the movie helps us understand that and surprisingly it is Anderson, almost more so than Larson, who really drives the point home...While Brie Larson is the star of the film, I’d straight up argue that Ella Anderson does all the real work. Both in terms of developing Jeanette and helping Woody Harrelson craft Rex...Ella Anderson is the only one truly engaged with Woody Harrelson

I praise Ella Anderson and give some props to Brie Larson for knocking down the pinks Anderson sets up
— WHEREVER I LOOK
Ella Anderson, the middle actress to play Jeanette, becomes the best thing about The Glass Castle with a heartbreakingly complex portrayal of a girl who simultaneously adores and fears her daddy
— THE REEL VIEWS
The acting is stellar throughout. Mr. Harrelson could garner Oscar attention as he manages to capture both the dreamer and failure that was Rex. Ms. Watts maximizes her underwritten role and turns Rose into someone we believe we know and (at least partially) understand. Ms. Larson embodies both the desperation of a teenager whose environment forced her to be wise beyond her years, and the iciness of a grown-up trying so hard to leave the past behind. In just a few scenes, Robin Bartlett manages to portray a memorable and horrific grandmother – one whose actions explain a great deal. The most remarkable performance of all, however, belongs to Ella Anderson (the only good thing about The Boss). She captures our hearts as the adolescent Jeannette – the closest thing to a parent this family had.
— INTERNATIONAL POLICY DIGEST
A veritable showcase for Woody Harrelson and Ella Anderson who shine brightly.
— LETTERBOXD
Ella Anderson plays the pre-teen Jeannette, and she turns in a really great performance, matching Woody Harrelson in scene after scene.
— SFIST
But it’s young Ella Anderson, as young Jeannette, who steals the show—and your heart. Anderson starred on the Nickelodeon series Henry Dangerand had roles in the movie comedies The Boss and Mother’s Day, and her expressive face shows just how Rex’s weakness and failures eventually crushed and scattered all his children
— PARADE
Ella Anderson...Simply Enchanting..possessing acting chops well beyond her years. This young lady has already established herself, with a lot more to come. I’m sure.
— KAPLAN VS KAPLAN
...but, the most poignant impact is made by 12-year-old Ella Anderson playing Jeanette as a pre-teen. She bears the worst brunt of the woeful heartache to break your own heart in the process. Keep an eye on that future star.
— MOVIE TIME GURU
The Glass Castle—elevated by Ella Anderson’s performance as a young Jeannette
— TIME OUT
But, the more memorable performance comes from Ella Anderson who plays Jeanette in the middle range of years that we see. Hardship in the moment, and as a coming of age experience, makes for richer subject matter than reminiscing about it and facing down those demons.
— SACRAMENTO PRESS
Kudos to the talented actress playing the role at different ages, young Ella Anderson
— WE ARE MOVIE GEEKS
Ella Anderson turns in phenomenal work...child actors are continuously showing their worth on the silver screen and turning in some truly fantastic work. The kids in The Glass Castle are the latest in that long line, and their contributions are arguably some of the best that we have seen in a long time.
— CINEMABLEND
The Metamorphosis of the bright and brave girl so effectively played by young Ella Anderson
— THE GLOBE AND MAIL
I won’t soon forget Harrelson’s performance...or young Ella Anderson, who plays Jeannette as a girl; the camera loves her.
— LEONARD MALTIN
Ella Anderson...acutely touching
— NJ.COM
There are a few scenes that he hits out of the park, which are given time to breathe, especially one in which a drunken Rex, having disappeared for a whole day after promising to bring food home to his hungry children, coaches a weeping, quivering young Jeannette (Ella Anderson) into sewing up a wound in his arm. Similarly stark is a scene of a harrowing swimming lesson.
— STAR ADVISOR
Jeannette, played in middle childhood by a wonderfully shrewd and watchful young actress named Ella Anderson
— NEW YORK TIMES
Ella Anderson (“Henry Danger”), the actress who plays Jeannette from about the ages of 9-13, is even better. Her sad-eyed, worried expression and tired resignation convey reservoirs of unspoken angst. Her authentic performance perfectly suits the unstable and upsetting childhood she and her siblings must endure. She’s the highlight of the film. Anderson’s haunted eyes, which look as if they’ve lived 50 years, will stay with the viewer long after the credits roll.
— THE WRAP
The show-stealing Ella Anderson
— WTOP
THE GLASS CASTLE actually belongs to Woody Harrelson, as Wall’s dad, and young Ella Anderson, who plays her as a pre-teen.

It’s a tough role for Harrelson, and one that calls on all his gifts as an actor, but he pulls it off, with the chemistry with young Anderson
— JOBLO
Incredibly well acted (by Anderson)...she asks him to quit drinking as when he hits the alcohol pretty hard (which is literally every day) he cannot take care of them. Cut to a quick scene of Rex screaming, crying, and begging for Jeannette to fetch him some whiskey from under the counter
— FLICKERING MYTH
Ella Anderson, a young actress possessed of great focus and emotional aquity
— LA WEEKLY
The performances are strong, with Harrelson having the toughest role making us feel anything but contempt for Rex. One reason he’s able to pull it off is the paternal chemistry he’s able to forge with young co-star Ella Anderson who plays the youngest version of Jeannette, the most hopeful version of her
— PUNCH DRUNK CRITICS
Ella Anderson...is particularly fantastic
— THE STAKE
“The Glass Castle” is actually more compelling in its flashbacks, when Jeannette (a mature and soulful Ella Anderson) is better fleshed-out as the family’s feisty, fearless voice of reason
— ROGER EBERT
Ella Anderson, who played eleven year old Jeannette, will if you have a conversation with her, she’ll blow your mind with how smart and eloquent she is.
— DIRECTOR, DESTIN DANIEL CRETTON
The joys and scars of Walls’ upbringing, her father’s cruel lessons and stirrings of the woman she’ll become are found in Ella Anderson’s moving performance as preteen Jeannette. Anderson’s instinct to let the drama come to her, to nourish moments without appearing to try, is striking for any actor, much less one 12 years old.

Several of the film’s strongest emotional punches involve Anderson’s Jeannette: a swimming lesson turned abusive, a plea for her alcoholic father to stop drinking.
— TAMPA BAY TIMES
Ella Anderson, does a lovely job portraying a starry-eyed daughter who idolizes her father
— THE DENVER POST
The amount of subtlety in her relationship with Rex, as well as her siblings, is rarely seen in such a young performer...this is wonderful work
— AUDIENCES EVERYWHERE
Jeannette (played marvellously as a youngster by Ella Anderson)
— ECONOMIST
Ella Anderson has some fine, quietly concentrated scenes with Harrelson, pleading with him to quit drinking
— CHICAGO TRIBUNE
When an 11-year-old version of the character (Ella Anderson) watches her father slip back into drinking habits, the audience is reminded through incredible acting and believable tears that love and pain often can go hand-in-hand. The actors demonstrate this beautifully.
— THE STATE PRESS
Ella Anderson as ten-year-old Jeannette gives a stellar performance that is advanced so far beyond her years. Emotional and raw, she sets the tone for the film and allows the audience to grow to love her.
— ASHLEY MENZEL, FILM CRITIC
Both Ella Anderson, who plays Jeannette as a 10 year old, and Larson, who takes over the role once the story shifts to the teen years, turn in compelling performances...For Ella, that means playing Jeannette with the hopefulness of a child who has not had the great expectations about her parents beaten into the dust.

The young actress is believable both as a typical youngster and as the child who like in so many homes with an alcoholic parent must take on the responsibilities of an adult far too early. Even in scenes with Harrelson, who plays Rex with everything from cockeyed optimism to gut-checking honesty, Ella’s a worthy scene partner.
— TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
Ella Anderson in particular does a spectacular job as preteen Jeannette.
— ELLE MAGAZINE
Jeannette, impressively played as a nine-year-old by Ella Anderson
— SCREEN DAILY
At the core of the film are beautiful scenes of a child gradually awakening to the heartbreaking truth about a parent...(the moment) when Harrelson and Anderson confront the real monster of Rex’s drinking is hugely memorable.
— THE GLOBE AND MAIL
Jeannette Walls on Ella Anderson, Walls says. “She kind of blew me away.”
— VANITY FAIR
Ella Anderson (from Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger) portrays Jeannette as a child. She gets one of the best scenes, in which the wise-beyond-her-years character begs her father to stop drinking, recognizing that his addiction is making any kind of improvement impossible.
— THE AISLE SEAT
What’s even better is that 12-year-old Ella Anderson, who plays the intermediate-aged Jeannette, has obviously studied Larson. Two or three times during her sections of this heavily intercut film, Anderson does something with her posture that is absolutely Larson-like.
— THE MERCURY
Ella Anderson’s portrayal of Jeanette as a teenager is a difficult role to play but Anderson embraces the material and makes it her own
— SCOTT MENZEL, FILM CRITIC
Most of the heavy lifting in The Glass Castle come from Ella Anderson as the younger Jeannette. Anderson’s scenes with Harrelson are poinant
— LIVE FOR FILM
Anderson, proves to be the most compelling iteration of Jeanette, at her most raw and trusting of her father’s wiles, before she learns to close off and protect herself from his manipulations.
— PROVIDENCE JOURNAL
Academy Award winner Brie Larson stars as the adult Jeannette, who somehow escaped from her childhood circumstances. However, it’s twelve year-old Ella Anderson, who plays Jeannette at a younger age who tugs at your heartstrings. This young girl is forced too quickly to grow up and be the only rational adult in this family of six.
— FRIDAY FLYER
Harrelson, Larson and Watts are superb. They play their characters well. Harrelson is at the top of his game. Yet, young actor Ella Anderson steals scenes. She more than holds her own with more seasoned cast members.
— VALDOSTA DAILY TIMES
The flashback sequences, carried by Harrelson and Anderson, are the best parts of the film.
— THE JEWISH NEWS
Anderson delivers a powerful performance as the young Jeannette, who loves her father, but is disappointed when he can’t overcome his alcoholism and the devastating impact it has on their family.
— CORAMDEO THE BLOG
The flashback structure continues throughout with the terrific Ella Anderson anchoring the midsection as Jeannette grows older and more self-reliant.
