Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconBeautifully filmed yet mostly inert, The Goldfinch mishandles its source material, flattening a complex narrative into a largely uninvolving disappointment.

Tara McNamara quote iconArt-centered drama about loss has teen drinking, drug use.

Jim Judy quote iconSo, as it stands, the film is a mixed bag filled with good performances and a compelling nature revolving around loss and damaged souls, but also a disjointed, sometimes flat and ultimately a bit frustrating approach at telling such a tale.
