The film is an adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed best-selling novel. The book won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

Story Outline

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. This sends 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.

The Goldfinch is produced by Nina Jacobson (The Hunger Games films, American Crime Story) and Brad Simpson (World War Z, American Crime Story). Mari Jo Winkler-Ioffreda, Kevin McCormick, Sue Kroll, and Courtenay Valenti are the executive producers.
