It's not a bad movie, but it's only for people who read the book and can recognise the characters and storylines. The movie is rushed at times and we don't get the richness of the relationship of Theo and other key characters like Pippa. The underworld of stolen art market and antiques in the book is fascinating in the book but absent in the movie. I hope authors of epic novels like The Goldfinch stop selling their books to movie producers and trust televsion/streaming services with their stories.
