Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu star alongside Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B in a true story about dancers who scammed their wealthy older clients out of thousands of dollars during the financial crisis of the late 2000s. Lorene Scafaria, who wrote NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST, and wrote and directed SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, directs this caper movie about women who are determined to get what they want, no matter the cost.

When Theo Decker (Ansel Elgort) was young, his mother was killed while they visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see mom's favorite painting, "The Goldfinch." Theo's actions on that day define his life as he grows up, passing from the care of multiple families and into a life of forgery and shady enterprise. This adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Donna Tartt comes from BROOKLYN director John Crowley, and features Finn Wolfhard, Sarah Paulson, Luke Wilson, Jeffrey Wright, Nicole Kidman, Oakes Fegley and Aneurin Barnard in an epic story about fate and coming of age.
