The acting is strong. Jacob Tremblay is wise beyond his years. And there’s a Wilson! Pacing is very good, I didn’t really notice the length at all. Have not read the book.
Theodore Decker was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day — a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch.
A very entertaining drama with strong cast and gorgeous production.
