‘And I add my own love to the history of people who have
loved beautiful things, and looked out for them, and pulled them from the fire,
and sought them when they were lost, and tried to preserve them and save them
while passing them along literally from hand to hand, singing out brilliantly
from the wreck of time to the next generation of lovers, and the next’.
Hugely anticipated adaptation of Donna Tartt’s multi-award-winning novel, including the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
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.
