The Stranger Goldfinch

Mark Hughes the Screenwriter, Film Critic at Forbes spoke about his meetings with Bill Clinton and this seems to mirror everyone who has come into contact with his magic charisma.

I met Clinton several times (about 4, I think), first as a civilian before he was president and later while working on his first presidential campaign. The best way I can describe him to you is this: When you are talking to him, you feel like he doesn’t care about anything or anybody else around but you. He makes you feel like the most important person in the room, which is an assessment I’ve heard many people make about him and it’s absolutely true.

As Donna Tartt Pulitzer Prize Novel The Goldfinch gets the Green Light for a big screen adaptation, we look forward to seeing the young raising star of Netflick’s Stranger Things take up more mature roles. The novel, told in the first person by Theodore Decker who, at the age of 13, survives a terrorist bombing at an art museum in which his beloved mother dies. Staggering out through the debris, he takes with him a small, Dutch Golden Age painting, The Goldfinch, which will serve as a singular source of hope as he descends into a world of crime. The painting is one of the few surviving works by Rembrandt’s most promising pupil, Carel Fabritius; almost his entire oeuvre was destroyed in the Delft explosion of 1654, in which Fabritius was killed.
