‘The Goldfinch’ Feature Adaptation Gets A Debut Trailer

The Goldfinch has been a book that has been sat on my bookshelf for what seems like years. It’s one of those that I will get ’round to reading one day, but it looks like I’m going to have to crack on as the feature adaptation is incoming. A debut trailer has arrived for the new film, which comes to cinemas this September.

The Goldfinch is based on the globally acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

We already debuted the poster for this earlier in the week – check that out at the end of the link – and now the trailer is here to delight – and delight it does!

Directed by BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (Brooklyn), the film features a multigenerational cast led by Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) as Theo Decker and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Big Little Lies) as Mrs. Barbour.

Here’s the plot:

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.

This looks like some powerful stuff.

The Goldfinch hits cinemas on 27th September.
