Read the full synopsis

Full film details

Jeannette Walls and her three siblings live a life that’s almost the polar-opposite of the all-American dream. Her father Rex is an alcoholic, who flits in and out of unemployment, while her mother Rose is just another struggling artist.

And, just when the family seem to be back on track with a roof over their head and some money rolling in, it’s cruelly snatched away and it’s back to living under the stars and foraging for food in the dumpster.

But, despite her dysfunctional parents and lack of formal education, Jeannette makes her way to New York, where she attends college and eventually gets an internship working for a newspaper. The rest they say, is history.

This is the true story of how an uneducated, nomadic child went on to become an award-winning journalist and writer.

Adapted from the New York Times bestseller of the same name, The Glass Castle provides an insight into a life that’s far from ordinary, which is tinged with heartbreak, sorrow, and joy. The film stars Oscar-winner Brie Larson (Room) as Jeannette Wells, as well as Woody Harrelson (War for the Planet of the Apes) and Naomi Watts (Twin Peaks).
