'What Maisie Knew' *Giveaway*

UPDATE: Congrats to Jennifermiya, noreen and Anita Althans, who won the What Maisie Knew prize pack! Please email me at losangelesstory@gmail.com with your addresses so I can have them sent to you. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Divorce is obviously hard -- doubly hard when you have parents who are intensely self-involved. That's what happens in new movie What Maisie Knew, starring one of my favorite actresses Julianne Moore and opening in Los Angeles May 17.

Based on the novel of the same name by Henry James, the film tells the story of 6-year-old Maisie as she's navigating life with parents who are way less than ideal.

Julianne Moore stars as an aging rock star to Steve Coogan's contemporary art dealer, and their bitter custody battle is less about providing a stable home for their child (Onata Aprile) than making the other one suffer a more damaging blow.

When the two parents then take on (again, less-than-ideal) new partners -- Maisie's former nanny, Margo (Joanna Vanderham) and the much younger bartender, Lincoln (Skarsgard) -- things go from bad to worse.

As Maisie gets older -- and is shuffled from house to house -- she realizes that she must rely on herself instead of her selfish parents.

You have to know I'd be one of the first to reply, after all my daughter's name is Maisie!!! My favorite Julianne Moore movie of all time is "Boogie Nights". The eclectic throwback to the 70's as well as an all star casts makes it so entertaining. She is fantastic in all her movies!!

Awesome, thanks, Noreen!

I really liked her in Nine Months. Hugh Grant and Robin Williams were hilarious, and she added to it. I know maybe not one of her more well known roles. I also liked her in the forgotten. And I liked it and shared it.
