What Maisie Knew (2012) - Alexander Skarsgard , Julianne Moore
I'm a big fan of Alexander Skarsgard ever since I saw him in HBO's Generation Kill , and his turn in this movie I have to say is a charming and amazing portrayal of a man who essentially from the onset appears ill suited to be a parent , but turns out to be a loving father figure . The rest of the cast also delivers an amazing performance , especially the young girl who portrays Maisie , she shows amazing promise as an actress and her innocence mixed with her serious eyes lights up the screen. Julianne Moore as the mother mixes well the adoring and menacing side of Susanna and you can't really decide if you hate her or pity her. The storyline is great in its twist and turns and the narrative opens up slowly but draws you in especially in the middle when Maisie starts to really warm up to her step parents . Although a bit slow for me in the start ,this film is beautifully made , and wonderfully crafted... Not something you can pass off.
