What Maisie Knew

As Julianne Moore is one of my favourite actresses I fancy this one, even though I am only going to be able to arrive as the movie starts, or maybe just before. So if you fancy coming to it, I'll see you at about 6pm, the movie will start very soon afterwards so get your ticket on arrival I am definitely attending.

Courtesy of HPPH's website here is a bit about the movie :

More battle of wills than tug of love, Henry James’s 1897 novel What Maisie Knew is here updated to present-day Manhattan.

Ageing rock star Susanna (Moore, never better) and permanently distracted art dealer Beale (Coogan, ditto) are the neglectful parents, the magnetic Onata Aprile their six-year-old daughter, and Joanna Vanderham the nanny who evidently cares more for her than they do.

McGehee and Siegel’s film is a powerfully executed, deftly observed meditation on an all-too-familiar domestic tragedy.

OK then, this should be good I reckon, pretty cynical too I hope!
