Own The Goldfinch on Blu-ray and DVD on December 3 and Digital on November 19 (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

I have been a fan of bestselling author, Donna Tartt, since she started releasing books beginning in 1992. I still can't get over how she was only 29 when she released "The Secret History," and the followed this best selling release with two more amazing books, "The Little Friend" and "The Goldfinch." Her latest book release has since been turned into a full length feature film and star Stanger Things' star, Finn Wolfhard, along with Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman, Luke Wilson, Saraha Paulson, and so many more great actors and actresses. And, when you have great talent in the movie, you know it is going to be a winner...and, that it was! 

I ended up seeing The Goldfinch when it released in theaters, while my girls were in a homeschool class. It was during the week, and I was surprised to see so many people filling the theater to see this movie.  I guess I wasn't alone in wanting to see how Donna Tartt's book transferred over onto the big school. It is usually hit or miss when a book is turned into a movie, as the movie is either nothing like the book, or the cast and movie can't really live up to the hype of the bestselling book.  Well, with The Goldfinch movie it really was a winner, and had myself and all the moviegoers captivated and engaged with the film from start to finish. And, when the credits began to roll, we all started clapping, as it was that good.

Here is more about The Goldfinch, which will be releasing to Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow...

About this movie:

"The last time 13-year-old Theo Decker (Oakes Fegley) saw his mother, she was gliding away from him into another gallery of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Seconds later, a terrorist bomb exploded destroying priceless pieces of art…and shattering Theo’s life forever. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, friendship and even love.

Throughout the turbulent years, as he grows into adulthood, Theo (Ansel Elgort) secretly clings to a single, precious object—his one tangible connection to the mother he lost on that terrible day—a priceless painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch. The Goldfinch."


Doesn't the trailer make you want to see this movie?  I, for one, was excited when I received an advance copy of the movie, as I couldn't wait to watch it again, and also share it with my husband. We watched it over the weekend, and by the end credits, my husband was saving he loved it, too. He had no idea what the movie was about, nor had he read Donna Tartt's book.  All he knew is that I was raving about it after seeing it in the theaters the first time, and couldn't wait for it to arrive on DVD.

In addition to the movie, the Blu-ray and DVD copies have some great special features you'll want to check out after you see the movie.  They include two featurettes, as well as deleted scenes.  I am so happy that I finally own The Goldfinch on DVD and Blu-ray and will definitely be watching this movie time and again. If you are looking for a great suspenseful movie to watch and haven't seen The Goldfinch yet, you really must pick it up when it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow.   And, if you already saw it in theaters, tomorrow is your lucky to pick it up and watch it again.  With the holidays fast approaching, this movie would make for a great gift idea for movie lovers.  I would have loved to find it under the tree to add to my movie collection, if I didn't already own it. :-)
