Nothing is ever exactly as it seems when “The Goldfinch” arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. A beautifully wrought coming-of-age story, intimate in its emotion and sweeping in its design, “The Goldfinch” is the film adaptation based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book of the same name.
Directed by BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (“Brooklyn,” “Closed Circuit”), the film features a multigenerational cast led by Ansel Elgort (“Baby Driver,” “The Fault in Our Stars”) as Theo Decker and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Mrs. Barbour. The film also stars Oakes Fegley (“Pete’s Dragon,” “Wonderstruck”) as Young Theo, Aneurin Barnard (“Dunkirk,” TV’s “The White Queen”) as Boris, Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things,” “IT”) as Young Boris, Sarah Paulson (“The Post,” TV’s “American Crime Story”) as Xandra, Luke Wilson (“The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Legally Blonde”) as Larry and Jeffrey Wright (TV’s “Westworld,” “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1”) as Hobie.
Rounding out the main ensemble cast are Ashleigh Cummings (TV’s “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries”) as Pippa, Willa Fitzgerald (“Little Women”) as Kitsey Barbour, Aimee Laurence (TV’s “Chicago P.D.”) as Young Pippa, Denis O’Hare (TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Lucius Reeve and Boyd Gaines (“Driving Miss Daisy”) as Mr. Barbour.
“The Goldfinch” is produced by Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. Mari Jo Winkler-Ioffreda, Kevin McCormick, Sue Kroll and Courtenay Valenti served as executive producers. The screenplay is by Oscar nominee Peter Straughan (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), based on the novel by Donna Tartt.
The behind-the-scenes creative team included Oscar-winning director of photography Roger Deakins (“Blade Runner 2049”), Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett (“Her”), editor Kelley Dixon (TV’s “Breaking Bad”) and costume designer Kasia Walicka Maimone (“Bridge of Spies”). The music is by Trevor Gureckis (TV’s “Bloodline”).

The last time 13-year-old Theo Decker (Oakes Fegley) saw his mother, she was gliding away from him into another gallery of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Seconds later, a terrorist bomb exploded destroying priceless pieces of art…and shattering Theo’s life forever. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, friendship and even love.
Throughout the turbulent years, as he grows into adulthood, Theo (Ansel Elgort) secretly clings to a single, precious object—his one tangible connection to the mother he lost on that terrible day—a priceless painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch. The Goldfinch.
