What it's about:

What Maisie Knew is a contemporary New York City revisioning of the Henry James novel by the same name. It revolves around unwitting 7-year-old Maisie, caught in the middle of a custody battle between her mother Susanna, an aging rock star, and her father, Beale, a major art dealer.

What the critics thought:

Sensitive and almost unwatchably perceptive about dysfunctional families and it's acted with knife-sharp precision.
- Cath Clarke , Time Out

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.
- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
The aggravatingly manipulative What Maisie Knew feels, perhaps deliberately, as if its emotions were drawn in brightly colored crayon.
- Joe Neumaier , New York Daily News
What Maisie Knew packs a surprising emotional punch, one that stays with you for a while when the movie's over.
- Moira MacDonald , Seattle Times

In New York City, a young girl is caught in the middle of her parents' bitter custody battle.
