Ansel Elgort shot to fame after starring in the film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars, and now he’s trying to strike gold again by starring in another adaptation.
This time, he stars as Theo Decker in the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Goldfinch. In the movie, Theo’s life is changed forever when his mother dies in a terrorist bombing.
With nowhere to go, he’s taken in by Mrs. Barbour (Kidman), a kind and wealthy woman who comforts him in his grief. He also befriends Boris, played by ‘Stranger Things’ star Finn Wolfhard, the rich son of a Ukrainian immigrant who later reappears in Theo’s life.
In addition to Wolfhard, Kidman and Elgort, this movie also stars Jeffrey Wright, Luke Wilson and Sarah Paulson.
John Crowley directed this movie, which is pretty significant because he also directed the 2015 award-winning film Brooklyn. That film was also based on a novel.
The Goldfinch will hit theaters September 13, 2019.
