Brie Larson and Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton re-team for this drama based on Jeannette Walls' best-selling memoir.
A young girl is raised in a dysfunctional family who are constantly on the run from the FBI. Living in poverty, she comes of age guided by her drunkard, ingenious father (Woody Harrelson) who distracts her with magical stories to keep her mind off the family's dire state, and her selfish, nonconformist mother (Naomi Watts) who has no intention of raising a family, along with her three siblings. Together, they fend for each other as they mature on the unorthodox journey that is their family life.
