The Gold Finch is scripted by Peter Straughan and directed by John Crowley. Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson produced the film. The film has the star cast of Ansel Elgort, Oakes Fegley, Aneurin Barnard, Finn Wolfhard, Sarah Paulson, Luke Wilson, Jeffrey Wright and Nicole Kidman. Trevor Gureckis composed the music.

Plot

Theodore Decker lost his mother in a terrorist attack in a museum. He was just 13 at the time of the attack. As his father had already abandoned him, Theodore doesn’t know where to go. Except for his estranged friend, Andy, Theodore has none in the city. So, he rejoins him and Andy’s mom becomes close to Theodore. When Andy’s parents are about to adopt Theodore, his father comes with his girlfriend and takes him to Las Vegas. Theo has a painting from the museum with him. After eight years, Theo goes back to his hometown to visit Andy and family. Andy’s elder brother says that Andy and his father died in an accident. Andy’s sister starts loving Theo, but Theo didn’t have any interest. Meanwhile, he loses his Goldfinch. What are the steps Theo takes to get it back? Did he recover it? Whom did he marry? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

Oakes Fegley, who plays the young Theo did a stunning job. Ansel Elgort is good with his sensible expressions. Luke Wilson, Sarah Paulson, Nicole and Jeffery Wright had done their part well.

Analysis

The director perfectly pictured the feeling of a youngster, who becomes homeless all on a sudden. The movie shows all kinds of people in a single frame. While his estranged friend makes a friendship again and his parents are ready to adopt him, the film tries to reveal that humanity exists. When the long chase is for life, we feel how people suffer to lead a simple life. The film has a lot of philosophies, but they are explained in simple terms. The movie is good in the technical as well as the production side.

What’s There?

  • The script and screenplay are good
  • Performances of the stars
  • Message is neat

What’s Not There?

  • The climax seems to be shot in a hurry

Verdict

The Goldfinch has come with good performances by the impressive star cast.
