'The Goldfinch', an all-star cast with a decent director...yet somehow turned out to be such a huge disappointment.
Ansel Elgort was right when he said there was a lot good in this movie, but none of it connected with me. I didn't read the book so I only watched this as a movie, because there should be a difference when it comes to adaptation.
Other than that, the movie felt rushed in terms of character development and relationships, which is odd cause the run time is 2.5 hours long. Finn Wolfhard plays a Young Boris and Aneurin Barnard as the adult version. Both actors have Russian accents and will often slip in and out.
The cinematography by Roger Deakins is great, but it isn't his best work. Not bad, just not memorable.
This should have been a straight to Netflix movie.
