WHAT MAISIE KNEW
Directed by Scott McGehee, David Siegel
With Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan, Alexander Skarsgard
2012, USA, 99 minutes, rated R for language
Based on the Henry James novel, this tale of marital spite, sexual jealousy and weakness is viewed entirely through the prism of a child who doesn't understand everything she has witnessed. Maisie rebounds between her acrimoniously divorcing parents like a tennis ball. A pawn in a bitter game, what Maisie learns is that no adult will protect her, despite their sincere but woefully inadequate declarations of love.
Post-film discussion, led by Sharon Klempner, LCSW, BCD, and Dr. Kenneth Silvestri, psychologist
"What Maisie Knew sees things that most of us manage to hide. James might have been shocked by the movie's profane taunts, but he would have recognized the system of betrayals, large and small, that he dramatized so well." David Denby, The New Yorker
