The Goldfinch is the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed bestseller of the same name, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and spent more than 30 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers list. Theodore “Theo” Decker (Ansel Elgort) was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day…a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch, The Goldfinch.
Insider tip: “Respectful of the source material’s complex narrative and lengthy cast of characters, it emerges as an absorbing reflection on loss, sorrow and the power of great art to comfort and endure (Allan Hunter, Screen International). Louisa Moore, Screen Zealots, adds: “Thoughtful viewers looking for a mature, refined drama should seek out this compelling narrative of grief, guilt, regret, and redemption.” Scott Mendelson, Forbes: “It’s a gorgeous, thoughtful, well-acted, morally complex and adult-skewing character study from a major studio. Warts and all, it’s exactly what we say Hollywood never bothers to make.” Pete Hammond, Deadline: “Riveting and beautifully crafted.”
