Larson's "Short Term 12" writer/director Destin Daniel Cretton wrote and directed "The Glass Castle", with Andrew Lanham as co-writer. Check it out below. Based on the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls, the movie follows a girl from a dysfunctional family who decides to gain a successful life on her own, AceShowbiz said. The poverty-stricken Walls' are constantly on the move due to the inability of Walls' father (Woody Harrelson) to hold a steady job.
But at some point in time, it becomes clear that that kind of unconventional upbringing wasn't any good for Jeanette. We were drowning, ' she's seen saying to him, and, seemingly near tears, she notes that 'It was your job to protect us'. But there is so much more to it than that. As expected, this looks fantastic and it's easily one of my most anticipated films to see this year.
The trailer first appeared on EW.
Judging by the painful honesty of her performance as Ma in Room, if there's anyone in Hollywood qualified to truthfully tell the story of a complicated woman, it's Larson.
At one point, an exasperated Rose Mary's shown having to point out to her husband that 'The kids are exhausted of moving to a new town every time you lose a job'.
Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, THE GLASS CASTLE is a remarkable story of unconditional love.
Brie Larson is trying to escape her past in the first released trailer for her upcoming film The Glass Castle.
It's always a tricky matter when adapting the life of a subject who's still living, but Walls seems pleased with The Glass Castle, giving the film her personal stamp of approval.
