A loving mom becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump-starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery.
A married couple is forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted from war-torn Eritrea, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher threatens his status as an all-star student.
13-year-old New Yorker Theo Decker's life is turned upside-down when his mother is killed in a terrorist attack at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Confused in the rubble of the tragedy, he steals a priceless piece of art known as The Goldfinch.
Young Andy Barbour (played by Ryan Foust) is already an accomplished Broadway actor. He's 14 and has performed more than 200 shows on, and off-Broadway. He's played the title role of Charlie, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Broadway as well as in the critically acclaimed Mary Page Marlowe (by Tracy Letts) and as a lead Make Believe (by Bess Wohl) at 2nd Stage Theater in NYC.

It's not a bad movie, but it's only for people who read the book and can recognise the characters and storylines. The movie is rushed at times and we don't get the richness of the relationship of Theo and other key characters like Pippa. The underworld of stolen art market and antiques in the book is fascinating in the book but absent in the movie.
I hope authors of epic novels like The Goldfinch stop selling their books to movie producers and trust televsion/streaming services with their stories.
