2017 Movies: The Glass Castle (Trailer Songs)
Jeannette Walls’ 2005 memoir book “The Glass Castle” has been adapted into a feature film that is set to be released this summer, on August 11.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the drama film chronicles the unconventional, poverty-stricken upbringing Jeannette and her siblings, Lori, Maureen, and Brian, had at the hands of their deeply dysfunctional parents, Rex Walls, an alcoholic, and Rose Mary, a painter and eccentric artist, who decide to move around Arizona and California every few months when he loses his job and their debts grow too numerous.
The cast ensemble includes Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts as Jeannette’s parents, Brie Larson as adult Jeannette, with Ella Anderson and Chandler Head playing young Jeannette, Sarah Snook as Lori Walls, Brigette Lundy-Paine as Maureen Walls, Josh Caras as Brian Walls, Max Greenfield, Joe Pingue, and Dominic Bogart.
The songs used in the trailer are “Sleep on the Floor” by American folk rock The Lumineers, from their 2016 album “Cleopatra”, and “Black Water” by Canadian indie folk band Reuben and the Dark, from their 2014 album “Funeral Sky”.
