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.
Where do I start? All of the characters were amazing and so wonderfully written. Although the book was so much more detailed at 770+ pages, the movie did its best to bring it full circle. Both the main character Theo and his friend Boris had such messed up childhoods, and still they both found strength in each other. I loved their relationship as they both struggled for love. This movie is like none other, full of twists you cannot imagine. Nicole Kidman played her role perfectly, and so did all 4 actors playing the younger and older versions of Theo and Boris. Jeffrey Wright is especially memorable in this film as Hobie. Having just finished the book before seeing the film, I was very pleased with the adaptation.
