Brie Larson attempts to run away from family in 'The Glass Castle'

Based on Walls' memoir, The Glass Castle will tell the story of the author's life as a renowned NY journalist whose unconventional upbringing has driven a wedge between her and her family.

The author herself has expressed her feeling of watching her story unveil on screen.

The Glass Castle looks to be split into two time periods: one of them focuses on Larson playing an older version of Walls who has moved to the city and left her free-spirited parents behind, and the other recounts her turbulent childhood in flashbacks.

At one point, an exasperated Rose Mary's shown having to point out to her husband that 'The kids are exhausted of moving to a new town every time you lose a job'. "Walls' eccentric mother (Naomi Watts) and alcoholic father (Woody Harrelson) would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty". That's all threatened when their parents follow them there, and the children have to come to grips with who their parents really are, and whether they want them in their lives.

An aging Rose Mary is depicted telling the adult Jeannette: 'You have a right to be angry, but I know you love him.

"I hope that in seeing my story, it makes people think about what they've been through", Walls says. "I think that's the magic of storytelling - if one person is willing to be fearless and tell their story, then that allows other people to be honest".

It's always a tricky matter when adapting the life of a subject who's still living, but Walls seems pleased with The Glass Castle, giving the film her personal stamp of approval.

The Glass Castle, which also stars Max Greenfield, arrives in theaters August 11.
