With source material from legendary author Henry James, and a cast that includes Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard and Steve Coogan, there are a lot of things to look forward to in the forthcoming “What Maisie Knew.” After doing a brief festival run last year that included stops in Toronto and Tokyo, the film is coming to theaters and we’ve got the exclusive poster below.
Adapted by Carroll Cartwright and Nancy Doyne, and co-directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel, the film tells of parents — an aging rock star (Moore) and a contemporary art dealer (Coogan) — who are locked in a custody battle for their six year old daughter Maisie. In the midst of all this, they each take on new lovers — ex-nanny Margo (Joanna Vanderham) and bartender Lincoln (Skarsgard) — further disrupting the world of young Maisie, who ultimately has to fend for herself.
Brought to you by the producers of “The Kids Are All Right,” this looks like another contemporary take on modern relationships between parents and children. “What Maisie Knew” opens May 2013 via Millenium Entertainment..
