Atom User Reviews for The Goldfinch
Well done !! Does not disappoint! Kept me for the full time and was true to Tartt’s book!!
a few issues, but overall a great movie. great casting and acting.
Overall a decent film, good plot, some unrealistic situations, but good acting, especially by Nicole Kidman.
Was a bit slow but kept me interested the entire time. I find myself still thinking about hours later. We enjoyed seeing it in the luxury theater with the recliner seats because the film was quite long!
Good movie. Great pacing for story to tell. Can't rush a storyline for those who complain about the pace. Not slow, not forced. Definitely makes me want to listen to some New Order afterwards.
It wasn’t the best movie I’ve ever seen, however I did enjoy it a lot.
The movie, even at two-and-a-half hours long, can’t fit in as much as does the 800-page novel, forcing director John Crowley and screenwriter Peter Straughan to pare down a bit on details, characters, and plot.
The film suffers from both an excessive faithfulness to its source and a general failure to translate that material into anything close to a gripping onscreen narrative.
In the end, there’s too much good stuff missing and yet not enough to serve as a satisfying meal.
