After losing his mother to the dreadful bombing accident at the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the tender age of 13, Theodore "Theo" Decker goes through a whirlpool of changes involving grief, guilt, reinvention, redemption, and even love. Through all of the trauma, 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.

The movie had its premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.

Actress Julianne Moore turned down the part of Theodore's mother, while Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson turned down the part of Hobie.

To prepare for his role as young Boris, Finn Wolfhard worked with his dialect coach, Kristina Nazarevskaia, and listened to Aneurin Barnard's speech patterns and watched the way Barnard moved in the movie 'Dunkirk'.
