What Maisie Knew

In a dance of changing partners, a little girl gets left out.

Little Maisie (Onata Aprile) is the casualty of the acrimonious divorce of two rich Manhattanites: rock star Julianne Moore and art dealer Steve Coogan. Abandoned by her self-absorbed parents, Maisie is left to the informal custody of their new partners, waiter Alexander Skarsgård and nanny Joanna Vanderham. Brilliant performances and inspired direction make this updating of Henry James’s novel an outstanding comedy-drama of contemporary adult relationships, as seen from the point of view of an innocent child.
