What Maisie Knew is a dramatic film that follows the severe life changes of the six year-old protagonist, Maisie (Onata Aprile). The quiet child observes the destruction of her parents marriage. Her mother, Susanna (Julianne Moore) is a well-known rock star and her father, Beale (Steven Coogan) is a self-absorbed business man. As the film progress, her parents are in the middle of a custody battle. Meanwhile, Maisie has her loving nanny, Margo (Joanna Vandermann). Margo is sweet, young, and naively marries Maisie’s father.
Most likely out of spite, Susanna remarries too. Her new husband is also a much younger and somewhat childish bartender, Lincoln (Alexander Skarsgård). Maisie is surprised by the changes in her life, but she rapidly adapts; however, through the eyes of Maisie, we learn which persons are the most valuable ones in her life.
I highly recommend this film. It is superbly directed and Onata as Maisie steals the show. Even though the story is about Maisie, Julianne Moore and Steven Coogan were dimmed by Onata Aprile. In addition, Alexander Skarsgård’s character will steal your heart because like Margo, they mature through Maisie’s innocence and their necessity to protect her.
