  • Cartwright, find something sadly timeless in a child torn apart in a custody battle that no one wins, least of all the child. show more

  • The result is a film that deeply engages us on multiple levels. Not only do we wonder what Maisie knows and how she knows it, we want to get this seedling to a place where she won't have to be transplanted every day. show more

  • A broken-family melodrama with a minimum of histrionics, Scott McGehee's and David Siegel's What Maisie Knew begins from scenes that will be familiar to most viewers who've witnessed a custody battle. Things get pretty orchestrated from that familiar scenario onward, but never to the point of unbelievability. show more

    As a mother, it\'s hard to watch especially the shamelessly manipulative part played by Moore. The acting was good, especially the little girl.

    In the 1890s during James\' days, novelists didn\'t follow the arc principle that we do today; they gave spalshes of scenes here and there. Unfortunately, this film follows does the same thing for the first half of the movie that leaves one wondering where it is going and if they should be going for the exit. It picks up when it becomes linear. Excellent acting all around, especially the young one.
