“You’re the boy, aren’t you?” Irish filmmaker John Crowley (‘Intermission,’ ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘Boy A’) takes the helm for a film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed best-selling novel about a young boy in New York who is taken in by a wealthy Upper East Side family after his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
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.
Ansel Elgort and Nicole Kidman lead a multigenerational cast that includes Oakes Fegley, Aneurin Barnard, Finn Wolfhard, Sarah Paulson, Jeffrey Wright and Luke Wilson.
THE GOLDFINCH opens in Irish cinemas on September 27, 2019.
