|What Maisie Knew, starring Julianne Moore and Onata Aprile (Photo courtesy of Millennium Entertainment)|
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.
