Warner Bros Pictures has officially unveiled the trailer of the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Goldfinch.
The story is about Theo Decker, a 13 years-old boy who witnesses his mother’s death in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Due to the impact of the explosion, he grabs his mother’s favourite painting: Carel Fabritius’ The Goldfinch.
He tries to cope between living with a wealthy family as his mother’s socialite friend, Miss Barbour takes him in and finds comfort in an antique shop owner who’s the first person to help Theo deal with his issues – his alcoholic father Larry, his new girlfriend in Las Vegas, keeping the painting hidden all the while.
The film is directed by John Crowley, who shared some details about the movie in USA Today. “We were able to address the idea of what you see and don’t see and also what you remember and how memories can get crushed and evaporate after time.”
He teams up with the Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins and the film stars Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Paulson, Luke Wilson, Jeffrey Wright and Finn Wolfhard. The trailer is appropriately intense with lots of crying and a soundtrack supplied for a beautiful movie trailer. It resonates a prime Oscar bait movie!
Goldfinch will hit worldwide on cinema on September 13. Check out the trailer and look at the photos:
