We’ve been waiting for this trailer to come out for a long time. Now that it has, it’s clear to see that The Glass Castle starring Brie Larson is going to be everything we wanted and more. This film is an adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ memoir by the same name. Larson plays the successful author in adulthood who grew up in poverty and was raised by two dysfunctional parents.

People released the trailer earlier today, along with a brief interview with Walls about the film. She’s thrilled about the way it turned out and notes that the cast could not be better.

Walls was more than approving of the choice to cast Larson as the The Glass Castle main character. She told People,

Larson does know a think or two about playing a character who is both strong and vulnerable. Her 2015 performance in Room is a perfect example of that.

In the film adaptation, Walls’ father, Rex, is played by Woody Harrelson and Niomi Watts plays her mother, Rose. Walls told People that Harrelson’s portrayal of her father was shockingly accurate. She said,

The Glass Castle will be in theaters August 11th. With Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson at the helm, it’s going to be a movie you won’t want to miss.
