    I’ve been waiting for John Crawley’s follow-up to “Brooklyn” for a long time. Here is the trailer to “The Goldfinch,” based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Donna Tartt.

    Hope Ansel Elgort is wearing his big-boy pants for the this demanding lead role. With this and “West Side Story” coming, it’ll do a lot to test where his career viability goes next. He kind of surprised me with “Baby Driver,” which is the only reason I think he might prove some skeptics wrong with Tony.

    Discuss.

    This looks absolutely gorgeous. I have high expectations for this.

    Reviews are very poor coming out of TIFF!

    Damn. Almost all movies out at TIFF got glowing reviews except for this. That’s saying something.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    As someone who really wanted to enjoy the novel, which I only read earlier this year in preparation for the adaptation, I can’t say I’m totally surprised by this outcome. While it had its moments, they were too few and far between considering the scope. I don’t understand the acclaim of the novel, and frankly found the Dickensian comparisons insulting, (although I am biased with him being my favourite author). However, since the subject matter is very baity, I wouldn’t count it out completely. The phrase “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” would seem to resonate with the response so far.

    Nevertheless I am a fan of some of the cast, so would like to see it out of curiosity. Hopefully they at least make something of the Las Vegas section, which for me was the most intriguing phase of the novel.

    I really don’t know if I’ve seen a better trailer in my life, so this is very surprising to me. Props to whoever cut together the trailer I guess.

    Ok so whoever sees this movie: Could you tell me how it is before I go see it. I want to see this and Downton Abbey but they both come out the same weekend and I don’t have the time to do the double showing deal that weekend 🙂

    I was excited for this movie and still am regardless. I could tell from the trailer it’s gonna be a mess but it was still a magnificent trailer. Anyway, I’m starting to think Nicole Kidman is establishing herself as a no-no in the film business. I mean, Destroyer, Boy Erased, The Beguiled, The Upside.. all critical and commercial flops (except for the last one, it made decent bo). And now this.. She is no longer relevant or quality guarantee, but I’m not gonna put all the blame on her, few roles over 50 is the main issue here.

    That’s disappointing news. Still will likely see the film, but my enthusiasm has clearly waned.

    This simply isn’t accurate. None of those were critical flops, all scoring in the 70-80% on RT, and the only reason any of them failed commercially was because of the studios yet they still won Nicole critics prizes and televised precursor nods.

    Reviews are driving me crazy, I keep hoping Jeffrey Wright is going to get some great roles in some acclaimed films but it keeps getting mucked up. The Laundromat is not helping either.
