The Goldfinch is directed by BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (Brooklyn) and features a multigenerational cast led by Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) as Theo Decker and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (The HoursBig Little Lies) as Mrs. Barbour.

The Goldfinch is produced by Nina Jacobson (The Hunger Games films, American Crime Story) and Brad Simpson (World War ZAmerican Crime Story) under their Color Force banner.

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, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love.
