Everything is before and after. In the middle is the painting. Second trailer for Irish filmmaker John Crowley’s latest, a film adaptation the globally acclaimed best-selling novel ‘The Goldfinch,’ opening in cinemas on September 27.


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.
