With The Glass Castle opening this weekend in theaters, I recently sat down with Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson for an exclusive video interview. They talked about what it was like collaborating with writer-director Destin Daniel Cretton, how a lot of the crew from Short Term 12 worked on the film, the challenge of playing characters that are based on real people, and a lot more.
If you’re not familiar with the story, it’s based on the memoir by Jeannette Walls and chronicles the life of a successful New York-based journalist all the way back to her poverty-filled upbringing. Brie Larson plays Jeannette Walls with Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts playing her eccentric parents. Max Greenfield, Sarah Snook, Robin Bartlett and Ian Armitage also star.
