Lionsgate has released a series of 30-second spots promoting the upcoming film The Glass Castle, based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by Jeannette Walls.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who co-wrote the script together with Andrew Lanham, the film chronicles the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family that move often because of the father’s inability of keeping a job.
Oscar winner Brie Larson plays Jeannette Walls, 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 and becomes a journalist for New York Times.
One of the spots, highlighting that “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”, features Harrelson’s character telling young Jeannette that she isn’t like other people and that she was “born to change the world”.
The Glass Castle is scheduled to be released in theaters this summer, on August 11. The Original Soundtrack Album, consisting of 14 songs, is set to be released on the same day. So far, only two tracks – one by Joel P West, who performs 13 out of the 14 songs, and one by Darla Hawn are available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes.
