The Goldfinch Movie Trailer

Ansel Elgort and Nicole Kidman Overcome Tragedy in the Emotional Trailer For The Goldfinch

After spending 30 weeks on The New York Times bestsellers list and winning the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, Donna Tartt's sweeping novel The Goldfinch has finally found its way to movie screens.

The multigenerational cast of the adaptation is led by Baby Driver's Ansel Elgort as Theo, who is just 13-years-old when his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He manages to steal her favourite painting on the way out of the wreckage (Carel Fabritius' "The Goldfinch") and is later taken in by family friends, beginning a journey of grief, guilt, redemption, and reinvention.

BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (Brooklyn) is on board as director, while the cast is rounded out by Nicole Kidman (as Mrs. Barbour, the woman who takes Theo in), Luke Wilson (as Larry, Theo's deadbeat dad), Sarah Paulson, Jeffrey Wright, and more. Watch the new trailer, above, and keep an eye out for the film when it hits cinemas on Sept. 27.
