What Maisie Knew
Julianne Moore teams up with the Oscar-winning director of ‘A Fantastic Woman’ for the sophisticated romantic comedy, ‘Gloria Bell’ - now showing exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema. Discover another fine performance from Moore in David Siegel and Scott McGehee’s excellent take on Henry James’ novel.
‘What Maisie Knew’ shows us life through the eyes of a young girl who witnesses the implosion of her parents’ marriage, the fissures that appear in their subsequent relationships and the narcissism that lies at the heart of their every decision.
Appearing in every scene, Onata Aprile is stunning as the irrepressible Maisie, as are Steve Coogan and Julianne Moore as her narcissistic parents.
