Jeanette Wells gave the world a gift in her memoir THE GLASS CASTLE in 2005. Wells an accomplished journalist with an interesting childhood had kept her upbringing a secret ashamed of the way she grew up. In an article with The LA Times, Wells wrote, “It was, I had thought, a shameful story, one I’d hidden for years, a childhood filled with poverty, alcoholism and homelessness. But it was also one filled with joy, pride and deep love. One day, challenged by mother to ‘just tell the truth,’ I wrote the story.” So here we are, 2017 and Wells’ life story is now up on the big screen.
