What Maisie Knew Movie Review
|What Maisie Knew" is about the erosion of innocence in the midst of plenty, yet it rarely feels heavy-handed, so serene is its own faith in its tiny heroine's strength. |
Ty Burr-Boston Globe
Selfishness and cruelty never go out of style, which might explain why this millennial update of Henry James's 1897 novel works so well.
J. R. Jones-Chicago Reader
The camera is often at Maisie's eye level, emphasizing how adults are seen by the perceptive Maisie. The sad-eyed Aprile's honest portrayal is heart-wrenching.
Claudia Puig-USA Today
A raw, uncomfortable examination of a family torn apart by two parents who love their daughter only half as much as they love themselves.
Barbara VanDenburgh-Arizona Republic
Without losing the 19th century author's sensibility, screenwriters Carroll Cartwright and Nancy Doyne have brought into the modern age James' unforgiving examination of the effect of a messy divorce on a child.
Betsy Sharkey-Los Angeles Times
The film raises more uncomfortable questions about Maisie's uncertain future than it ever answers, but that's in keeping with the emotional honesty the filmmakers are striving for.
One might compare 'What Maisie Knew' to 'Kramer vs. Kramer.' This is the better film, more subtle and less manipulative.
Frank Swietek-One Guy's Opinion
Henry James wrote the source novel in 1897, but its relevance to today's world of overworked, self-obsessed parents is downright eerie.
Al Alexander-The Patriot Ledger
The kid is goofy-sweet and innocent, with a bewildered expression that could charm even a pizza delivery man.
Kelly Vance-East Bay Express
She still believes that the world is an enchanted place that cannot hurt her. She does not understand what is going on around her, but we do.
Porn industry 1, Henry James 0.
Screenwriters...contemporize the 1897 Henry James novel with smart choices and directors McGehee and Siegel elicit fine performances from their cast, but despite the material's modern relevance [the film] feels like a long build to a single punch line.
Laura Clifford-Reeling Reviews
McGehee and Siegel -- as well as the adult cast -- are to be commended for keeping the film's depiction of marital strife from falling into melodrama and goopy sentimentality.
Ethan Alter-Television Without Pity
Searing and sad, with Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan at their fiercely-unlikable best.
Roger Moore-McClatchy-Tribune News Service
The film hits home thanks to a stunning performance by Onata Aprile. At age 7, Aprile has mastered the steepest challenge in screen acting: reacting in an engaging way.
It could make you angry, or open up old wounds, but in the best possible way. Let's get riled up, let's take it personally.
Most movies about divorce and fractured families play up the tumultuous melodrama, but What Maisie Knew goes for something much quieter and more profound. It's a subtly ambitious film that's smartly written, beautifully acted, and perfectly directed.
Perry Seibert-TV Guide's Movie Guide
Wrenching drama about child custody can spark discussion.
S. Jhoanna Robledo-Common Sense Media
Directing partners Scott McGehee and David Siegel go more mainstream and downstream with this modern-day, loose riff on Henry James' late-19th-century novel.
