the goldfinch

The film has been picked apart by critics and has failed to meet expectations at the box office.
The big-screen adaptation of Donna Tartt's novel has not gone down as well with critics as many were anticipating.
The story is about a young boy who lost his mother during a terrorist attack in a New York museum. 'The Goldfinch' is a painting stolen from the museum by the thirteen year old boy who survived the attack. The painting becomes the secret that gives meaning to his life and  the axis around which the story unfolds.
