The Goldfinch is the hugely anticipated film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed best-selling novel, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Directed by John Crowley (Brooklyn), the film features a multigenerational cast led by Ansel Elgort as Theo Decker and Nicole Kidman as Mrs. Barbour. 

Theodore “Theo” Decker 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.
