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.
Loved Deakins' cinematography in the movie - flawless and the reason I went on opening night. The last 25% of movie, strictly from a screenplay perspective, gets a bit convoluted, but that might be because I have not read the book and walked into it completely unaware of reviews and plot. The acting from the young Theo boy was impeccable - and Nicole Kidman, despite only a supporting role, was also superb. Luke Wilson - crushes it, as well!
