What Maisie Knew

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Steve Coogan and Ju­lianne Moore star in this witty cus­tody drama, told from the per­spec­tive of their an­gelic six-year-old daugh­ter. Look­ing to win favour with the courts, Dad mar­ries the nanny while Mum pairs up with a bar­tender. Maisie calmly watches the chaos . . . (Re­port, Page 12.) They say: Re­views were great across the board, par­tic­u­larly for the film’s de­pic­tion of its plucky cen­tral char­ac­ter and sub­tle emo­tional dy­nam­ics. Di­rected by Scott McGe­hee and David Siegel ( The Deep End). Wesay: Very sat­is­fy­ing de­pic­tion of real-life adult be­hav­iour, wrapped up in an at­trac­tive dra­matic pack­age. Rec­om­mended. Run­ning time 99 min­utes. Screens at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast.
