Scott McGehee and David Siegel's adaptation of Henry James' novel WHAT MAISIE KNEW stars Julianne Moore as Susanna, a self-involved rock star whose marriage to the equally egotistical Beale (Steve Coogan) is falling apart. They are both less-than-good parents to their six-year-old daughter Maisie (Onata Aprile). Maisie finds some solace in the care of the family's nanny as well as when she's looked after by Susanna's new boyfriend. WHAT MAISIE KNEW screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.
