The Press Reviews

  • It looks and sounds like a movie without quite being one. Full Review

  • It's terrible when a beloved novel arrives onscreen with a self-important thud, and that's putting it diplomatically in the case of The Goldfinch. Full Review

  • The Goldfinch is better than I expected it would be. And yet in clearing that bar, it bares open all the possibility that it could have been even more. Full Review

  • Unlike the tiny painting that gave the book its name, the film deserves a more expansive canvas. Full Review

  • It's neither a rousing success nor an embarrassing failure, falling somewhere in between, closer to admirable attempt. Full Review

  • Yet a morose and downbeat movie, too lost in the maze of its designer seriousness, is what "The Goldfinch" finally is. Full Review
