Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson star in The Glass Castle


If you’re stuck wondering what to get up to this weekend, it’s time to quit your pondering and head down to the cinema. ‘The Glass Castle’ chronicles the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family.

Brie Larson brings Jeannette Walls’ best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms.

This is a story of unconditional love, as well as ups and downs along the way. In the featurettes below Jeannette explains how it was crucial to find the right actors for the roles and how her father gave her family a hope and a dream for the future. If a parent gives you that – then you’re lucky.

‘The Glass Castle’ is out in UK cinemas on October 6th.
