Waiting on Wednesday #44: THE GLASS CASTLE (film)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme originally hosted by Breaking the Spine and now taken over by Wishful Endings that highlights upcoming book releases we're excited to read. On my blog, I include movies as well.


THE GLASS CASTLE - 2017 

Cast: Brie Larson / Naomi Watts / Woody Harrelson  

Release Date: 11 August 2017. 

A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.



So I just recently discovered that this film is based on a book. Huh. I must look out for the book then...

Anyway. This movie stars Brie Larson, and that's enough to get me to watch it. She is amazing <3 And I love Naomi Watts too.

P.S. Isn't that poster stunning??!!




Anyone else excited for The Glass Castle

  2. I didn't know about the film but I did read the book years ago and it was kind of shocking to see the upbringing that these poor kids had. Definitely worth a read!

  6. I have been seeing this book everywhere for years; I'm not usually a fan of memoirs, so I never picked it up. I feel like I would be really sad watching this movie!

  15. I've been seeing this movie poster on Goodreads lately, and now I see that you're featuring the movie on your WOW post. So I went over to GR just now to check out the book. After reading the synopsis, I immediately added it to my shelves. It looks SO good!! I just hope the movie does it justice! Of course, I would like to read the book first. BTW, there's a giveaway for it on Goodreads, which I entered, even though there are over TEN thousand entries already.... Lol. Well, who knows, right?

    So sorry for the late comment back.... I'm still trying to catch up with the comments from this week's posts.... :(

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my CWW post!! Hope you're having a GREAT Saturday!! HUGS!!!! <23 <3 <3 :) :) :)
