The first look at the John Crowley-directed adaptation of The Goldfinch, based on Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning best-selling novel, is here. USA Today had the exclusive.

The Goldfinch tells the story of a boy (played by Oakes Fegley as a child and Ansel Elgort as an adult) in New York who is taken in by a wealthy Upper East Side family (led by Nicole Kidman’s Mrs. Barbour) after his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“It’s a very powerful and emotional coming-of-age story told from a personal point of view,” Elgort says. “It touches on the themes we all experience at one time or another – everything from loss, guilt, deception and betrayal to love, hope, friendship and redemption.”

The Goldfinch is a co-production from Amazon Studios and Warner Bros with WB handling the distribution. It co-stars Jeffrey Wright, Sarah Paulson, Finn Wolfhard, Aneurin Barnard and Luke Wilson. It’s set for release on September 13th.

UPDATE: Trailer added below.
