Based on the novel by Henry James
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.

The actors are really great, especially Maisie. It was a very real movie and it made you feel things. Although it's quite short, it does feel a little bit drawn out at some parts, but overall a very nice movie and great visuals!

Interesting film that shows divorce through the child perspective. Maisie is a 7 year old girl who is between her parents on an open-war for her custody. Touching and sad but very sweet and beautiful at the same time.

The little girl who plays Maisie is great, so little and fragile yet so perfect for the role. She carries the performance mostly with body language not so much with dialogue. Julianne Moore is always great and Alexander Skarsgard was very good too.
