Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) upcoming drama The Glass Castle. “When sober, Jeannette Walls’ brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.”
Max Greenfield, Iain Armitage, Ella Anderson, Charlie Shotwell, Sadie Sink and Andrew Shaver also star. The film hits theatres August 11, 2017.
