Plot summary

What is The Goldfinch movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Goldfinch" movie plot summary.

Thirteen-year-old Theodore Decker's mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. In the aftermath of the explosion, a dying man urges him to take a painting - The Goldfinch - and his engraved ring. Theo hides the painting at his apartment, and is placed with the Barbours, the family of his childhood friend Andy. Theo reconnects with Andy and becomes close to Mrs. Barbour (Nicole Kidman), who encourages his interest in antiques and art.
Following the instructions of the dying man, Theo locates the antiques shop run by James "Hobie" Hobart, whose partner Welton "Welty" Blackwell (Robert Joy) gave the ring to Theo to return. Hobie (Jeffrey Wright) allows Theo to visit Pippa, Welty's niece who was injured in the bombing, and the children bond before Pippa is sent to live with her aunt in Texas. Theo visits Hobie regularly and settles into life with the Barbours, as Andy hints that his parents are considering adopting him. However, Theo's estranged father Larry (Luke Wilson), claiming to be newly sober, arrives with his girlfriend Xandra (Sarah Paulson) to relocate Theo to Las Vegas; Theo brings The Goldfinch, keeping it hidden.
In Las Vegas, Theo befriends Boris, a Ukrainian classmate, who has also lost his mother, introduces Theo to drugs and alcohol, which follow him into adulthood and both their fathers are abusive. Deep in gambling debt, Larry fails to extort Theo's education fund, and is killed in a drunk driving accident. Theo runs away to New York, taking Xandra's dog Popper and the painting, but is unable to convince Boris to join him. Hobie allows Theo to live with him.
