Films Heads up: The Glass Castle (out on 6 October 2017)

The Glass Castle is a new movie adaptation from the book by Jeannette Walls - her memoir about her bohemian childhood spent travelling around with her alcoholic father (played by Woody Harrelson) and an artistic mother in poverty most of the time. The trailer looks great and shows glimpses of powerful performances by Brie Larson, Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson.

  The Glass Castle arrives in UK cinemas on Friday 6th October 2017.

The story

Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, The Glass Castle is a remarkable story of unconditional love. Oscar® winner Brie Larson brings Jeannette Walls’s best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father (Woody Harrelson), found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms.
