Overall a decent film, good plot, some unrealistic situations, but good acting, especially by Nicole Kidman.

The Goldfinch has a painting at its center, but despite a classy palette of ingredients conjures a lifeless, disjointed picture. Adapted from a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the movie represents a transparent bid to bring the book's prestige to the screen, but it's another case of literary underpinnings being lost in translation.

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.
