Donna Tartt‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Goldfinch has been a celebrated book since 2013. Like many award winning books you wonder why its taken so long to make it to the big screen. This Autumn the wait will be over and today we get the film’s first trailer, courtesy of Warner Bros.
After several films as support act then lead role in Baby Driver Ansel Elgort gets another chance as lead character. In an award winning book he plays a young man in grief and guilt, when his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Trailer looks fantastic plus its a film with legendary Roger Deakins as Cinematographer…

The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love.
