It revolves around unwitting 7-year-old Maisie, caught in the middle of a custody battle between her mother Suzanna, an aging rock star, and her father, Beale, a major art dealer. In a race to win the court’s advantage, Beale marries Maisie’s nanny Margo, prompting Suzanna in turn to marry friend and local bartender, Lincoln. Both forced into a battle neither wishes to be a part of, Margo and Lincoln come to empathize with Maisie’s position and over time with one another’s. Teased by the notion of making their own surrogate family, the trio must either submit to the will of Maisie’s parents or eventually face their wrath.
Plot: The story frames on 7-year-old Maisie, caught in a custody battle between her mother – a rock and roll icon – and her father. What Maisie Knew is an evocative portrayal of the chaos of adult life seen entirely from a child’s point of view.

A heartbreaking gem of a movie. Loved it.
This movie is a little gem. I read the New York Times review that said it was “Brilliant” or whatever, and I don’t know if I’d go that far, but it’s definitely the best movie about divorce and child custody I’ve ever seen, and it’s nothing like Kramer vs. Kramer. It’s actually really sweet and real feeling, mostly because you really identify with the little girl Maisie. All the adult actors are great, and sometimes funny (Steve Coogan), but I especially loved Alexander Skarsgard. He seems like a loser when you first see him, but he ends up being super loving, and his scenes with Maisie are really fun to watch. Haters are going to hate, but I think anyone would relate to this film about parents, kids, and finding people to love.
What Maisie Knew addresses the theme of divorce and its consequences on children through the eyes of little Maisie, but if the approach is sincere, the movie isn’t convincing. The situations, not always very realistic, are dreadfully frozen, same thing applies to the characters who don’t evolve, stuck in their unsubtle stereotypes. Moreover, the rhythm is terribly slow, the few interesting things are a lot too diluted, and even though the movie is just an 1h35 long, you quickly get bored. Add on top of that badly directed actors who don’t convey enough emotions and a far-fetched happy ending, and there is not much left to save from this uninspired adaptation that deserved better.
