Synopsis

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, this tale of growing up whilst dealing with grief sees a young man named Theo struggling after the death of his mother during a terrorist attack in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. After witnessing the event, Theo takes the original 17th century Goldfinch painting his mother admired, the canvas representing his complicated feelings about his loss and the difficult situations he finds himself in to deal with his pain. Placed with a wealthy family of an estranged friend, and later becoming involved in art forgery, as well as experiencing first love, this drama is a layered exploration of life’s hardships, growing up and key questions around the art industry.
