The Film: Directed by Paul Newman, 1987's The Glass Menagerie was an adaptation of Tennessee Williams' play.
Years ago, Tom (Malkovich) walked out on his sister and his mother after one too many spats. And he's here to tell the tale. It's mighty melancholy.
The Role: Tom gives an account of his family life - back in the day when his delusional mother was desperate to find the perfect husband for her shy, disabled daughter. And all she wants to do is play with her little glass animals. Back off, mum!
The Creepy: Tom spends a fair bit of time skulking around an abandoned apartment block. It's an unnerving image.
