The Goldfinch Movie Casting

The Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Goldfinch is coming to a big screen near you in October 2019, and the cast is sure to pique your interest. It features the familiar faces of Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Paulson, and Luke Wilson, as well as some less familiar faces that are growing in popularity, such as Aneurin Barnard who was recently seen in Dunkirk. The movie will be directed by John Crowley (not my professor who shares the same name) and is getting a lot of buzz. I for one am super excited and I haven’t even read the book. But I’ve only heard AMAZING things and once I can commit to a 700+ page book, I’ll dive right in.

Here’s the Amazon blurb, in case you haven’t heard:

Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don’t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love–and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.
