Cretton has made two outstanding films so far: I Am Not a Hipster (in 2012) and Short Term 12 (in 2013). This time he adapts the memoirs of Jeannette Walls, as played by Brie Larson, a woman growing up in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father. The cast features Naomi Watts & Woody Harrelson (as her odd mother & father, respectively), Sarah Snook, Max Greenfield, Brigette Lundy-Paine, and others. As expected, this looks fantastic and it's easily one of my most anticipated films to see this year. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Destin Cretton's The Glass Castle, direct from YouTube:
