“Even the tiniest things mean something,” in the new trailer for John Crowley‘s “The Goldfinch.” Warner Bros Pictures released the trailer for Crowley’s adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
The film stars Ansel Elgort (“Baby Driver”) and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”). Crowley directs the film with a script written by Oscar nominated Peter Straughan (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,”) and adapted from Tartt’s novel. The book was first published in October 2013 and later won the Pulitzer Prize in 2014. It spent 30 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers list.
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. 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.
Earlier in the week, an HBO first look clip was released for the Oscars hopeful. Crowley’s 2015 drama “Brooklyn” was nominated at the Academy Awards for best picture, best adapted screenplay and for Saoirse Ronan’s lead performance. “The Goldfinch” is shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins (“Blade Runer 2049”) and scored by award-winning composer Trevor Gureckis. It 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 served as executive producers.
It also stars Golden Globe winner Sarah Paulson, Jeffrey Wright (“Westworld”), Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”), and Oakes Fegley (“Pete’s Dragon”). Read Awards Circuit’s profile of the film to garner its awards potential!
