Adapted from the 2005 memoir of the same name, The Glass Castle follows the life of author and journalist Jeanette Walls. Featuring incredible performances from Woody Harrelson and Brie Larson, the film follows Walls’ life in 3 stages, from her younger years spent living in squats with her unstable parents, to her decision to move to New York at the age of 17. The film deals with complex traumas involving substance abuse and childhood neglect, and studies the lasting impacts of fractured relationships between parent and child in a deeply dysfunctional family setting.

Jeanette Walls’ remarkable memoir, described by Entertainment Weekly as “nothing short of spectacular”, spent more than 7 years on the New York Times Bestseller List.
