Based on the best-selling memoir written by Jeannette Walls, Oscar-winner Brie Larson (Room) and former Cheers star Woody Harrelson (The Messenger) star in the biographical drama The Glass Castle.

Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, The Glass Castle follows the life of a young woman (Larson) who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father (Harrelson), finds the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms.

Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) and written for the screen by Cretton and Andrew Lanham, The Glass Castle also stars Naomi Watts (St. Vincent) and Max Greenfield (Hello, My Name is Doris).

Though it was highly anticipated, The Glass Castle hit the glass ceiling in terms of critical and commercial success upon its theatrical release in August, 2017: it garnered a 48% Fresh Rating at reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes based on 137 published review, and it grossed a disappointing $17.2 million at the domestic box office.

Nonetheless, the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD releases of the PG-13 film includes the following extensive bonus package:

  • 9 Deleted Scenes
  • The Glass Castle: Memoir to Movie
  • A Conversation with Jeannette Walls
  • Making of “Summer Storm” by Joel P West
  • Scoring The Glass Castle
