Entertainment Weekly recently shared an exclusive poster for the upcoming film, What Maisie Knew. This poster is absolutely stunning and it features seasoned actors Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard, and young actress Onata Aprile.
What Maisie Knew is based off of book by Henry James that was published in 1897 and directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel. The novel is about a child who goes back and forth between the two homes of her divorced parents every six months. However, the film adaptation has been reworked into a more “modernized” setting.
Moore plays an older rock star, Suzanna, and Steve Coogan plays an art dealer, Beale. Both Suzanna and Beale are selfish and focused on their careers and not how their divorce is affecting their daughter, Maisie (Aprile). Suzanna remarries a younger bartender, Lincoln (Skarsgard), after Beale marries the nanny the hired to take care of Maisie (Scottish actress Joanna Vanderham).
Does this sound like a film you would be interested in seeing? Do you think this film will generate any potential awards buzz? What Maisie Knew premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this September and is set to hit theaters this May. Take a look at this stunning poster below:
