The Glass Castle

On August 11, Lionsgate will release "The Glass Castle" to theaters. It stars, Oscar nominee, Woody Harrelson and Oscar winner Brie Larson.

This is not your usual, light-hearted summer movie. "The Glass Castle" is based on a 2005 memoir by Jeannette Walls. The book recounts the rough, unconventional, poverty-stricken upbringing a young woman and her siblings had at the hands of their deeply dysfunctional parents.

Especially the father (played by Harrelson). It looks really interesting.
