New Trailer and Photos of Alexander Skarsgard in WHAT MAISIE KNEW

By  |  1 Comment

We have new photos and a trailer for What Maisie Knew to share with you today. This is one of the movies Alexander Skarsgard filmed during his hiatus last year, co-starring Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan and Joanna Vanderham, introducing Onata Aprile as “Maisie.”

A contemporary reimagining of Henry James’ novel, WHAT MAISIE KNEW tells the story of a captivating little girl’s struggle for grace in the midst of her parents’ bitter custody battle.  Told through the eyes of the title’s heroine, Maisie navigates this ever-widening turmoil with a six-year-old’s innocence, charm and generosity of spirit.

An aging rock star (Moore) and a contemporary art dealer (Coogan)—Susanna and Beale are too self-involved even to notice their neglect and inadequacy as parents; their fight for Maisie is just another battle in an epic war of personalities.  As they raise the stakes by taking on inappropriate new partners, the ex-nanny Margo and the much younger bartender Lincoln (Vanderham and Skarsgård), the shuffling of Maisie from household to household becomes more and more callous, the consequences more and more troubling.  Always watchful, however, Maisie begins to understand that the path through this morass of adult childishness and selfish blindness will have to be of her own making.

What Maisie Knew comes to theaters in May 2013.

    Looks like a heartwarming movie! I’ve never read the book, but maybe I will read it before the movie is in the theaters.
