Millennium Entertainment has announced that they are bringing the family drama What Maisie Knew to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film is directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel and stars Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan, Alexander Skarsgård, Joanna Vanderham, and Onata Aprile. What Maisie Knew will be available for purchase online and in stores beginning on August 13th.
A contemporary reimagining of Henry James’ novel, What Maisie Knew tells the story of a captivating little girl’s struggle for grace in the midst of her parents’ bitter custody battle. Told through the eyes of the title’s heroine, Maisie navigates this ever-widening turmoil with a six-year-old’s innocence, charm and generosity of spirit.
An aging rock star (Moore) and a contemporary art dealer (Coogan)—Susanna and Beale are too self-involved even to notice their neglect and inadequacy as parents; their fight for Maisie is just another battle in an epic war of personalities. As they raise the stakes by taking on inappropriate new partners, the ex-nanny Margo and the much younger bartender Lincoln (Vanderham and Skarsgård), the shuffling of Maisie from household to household becomes more and more callous, the consequences more and more troubling. Always watchful, however, Maisie begins to understand that the path through this morass of adult childishness and selfish blindness will have to be of her own making.
Millennium Entertainment has not released any details concerning the exact tech specs and special features that will be included with the disc.
