What Maisie Knew

After premiering at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, the adaptation of Henry James' novella What Maisie Knew is on the way to theaters. Julianne Moore plays an aging rock star battling for custody of her daughter Maisie, which looks to be quite a breakthrough debut performance for child actress Onata Aprile. The other side of the fight sees Steve Coogan as a major art dealer, but both parents seem to be fighting out of spite rather than love for their daughter. But maybe Margo (Joanna Vanderham) and Lincoln (Alexander Skarsgard), the significant others of Masie's parents, are the family she really needs.

Here's the first trailer for Scott McGehee & David Siegel's What Maisie Knew originally from Yahoo:

What Masie Knew is based on Henry James novella of the same name, directed by Scott McGehee & David Siegel and written by Carroll Cartwright & Nancy Doyne. Little 7-year-old Maisie is caught in the middle of a custody battle between her mother Suzanna, an aging rock star, and her father, Beale, a major art dealer. In a race to win the court's advantage, Beale marries Maisie's nanny Margo, prompting Suzanna to marry friend and local bartender, Lincoln. Both forced into a battle they didn't want, Margo and Lincoln may turn out to be the family Maisie really needs. Millennium Entertainment releases the film sometime this year.

Man, that one hit me right in the feels. It's about time a film approached this subject because it's a very confusing thing for a child and society likes to judge. I hate when I go to pick up my daughter from school and they treat me like a stranger...
