verdict
A great twist on a dysfunctional family tale. Great performances from the entire cast. Engrossing with an appropriate level of discomfort.
genre Drama
synopsis Based on the Henry James novella, the story frames on 7-year-old Maisie, caught in a custody battle between her mother – a rock and roll icon – and her father. What Maisie Knew is an evocative portrayal of the chaos of adult life seen entirely from a child’s point of view.
