Watch the First Trailer for ‘What Maisie Knew’
We all know trailers tend to be a little emotionally manipulative. But hopefully, that sense of passion carries over into the actual film and those emotions you’re feeling aren’t just a matter of good editing. And with the new trailer for Scott McGehee & David Siegel’s upcoming family-relationship drama What Maisie Knew, we’re given a healthy serving of torn and tender feeling.
After an appearance at TIFF last year, What Maisie Knew is headed for its theatrical release and now there is a first trailer for the film featuring a likeable and talented cast of Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgård, Steve Coogan, and child-actor Onata Aprile. As a contemporary adaptation of Henry James’ novel, the movie tells the story of a family broken apart and their young daughter who must adjust to their new lives, loves, and losses.
From what we see in this first trailer, the film has the potentially to be pretty emotionally devistating and showcase some great performances from the cast all around. And yes, you are hearing "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" by Stars in the second half of the clip. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
