What Maisie Knew
What Maisie Knew is a contemporary New York City re-visioning of the Henry James novel by the same name. It revolves around the 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 empathise with Maisie’s position and over time with one another’s.
