Cretton has made two outstanding films so far: I Am Not a Hipster (in 2012) and Short Term 12 (in 2013). But he's reunited with his old collaborator for a new movie, and the first trailer has just arrived.
Almost four years after Short Term 12, the two reunite for The Glass Castle, an adaptation of Jeanette Walls' memoir.
Larson steps into the role of the author as she traces her life back to her poverty-stricken upbringing by her unconventional parents, played by Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts. Along the way, audiences meet Walls' dysfunctional family, who were constantly on the move thanks to her father's inability to find a stable job - and his drinking problems.
For the real-life Walls, seeing Harrelson in character as her alcoholic, but loving, father brought tears to her eyes. Soon she becomes the journalist that we see in the film.
Sudan's al-Bashir will not attend Saudi summit for "special reasons"
The Sudanese leader extended his apology to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud not to attend the summit for personal reasons. US officials expressed their displeasure with the presence of Bashir at the summit and urged the host country to not invite him.
Check out the first The Glass Castle trailer below via EW, followed by some images. The Glass Castle was written by Destin Daniel Cretton (who also directed) and Andrew Lanham. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn't want the responsibility of raising a family. Here's what Watts had to say about her co-star Larson.
"I hope that in seeing my story, it makes people think about what they've been through", Walls says. "She understands how to be strong and vulnerable at the same time, how you can fight and be scared at the same time".
It's always a tricky matter when adapting the life of a subject who's still living, but Walls seems pleased with The Glass Castle, giving the film her personal stamp of approval.
