‘What Maisie Knew’ Trailer: And You Thought Divorce Couldn’t Get Any Messier

By  · Published on March 4th, 2013

It may only be Monday, but our feel-bad trailer of the week has already arrived (and with a bullet). In Scott McGehee and David Siegel’s What Maisie Knew, an already-messy divorce takes on an extra cast of awful, thanks to some apparently shifting romantic entanglements. Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan star as hip New Yorkers in the middle of a particularly ugly divorce and custody battle that threatens the well-being of their only daughter, an eerily adult Onata Aprile (as Maisie). Things get still worse when Coogan takes up with the nanny, Moore takes up with Alexander Skarsgard, and ‐ oops! ‐ said nanny and said Skarsgard just might take up with each other. See? Messy.

If you’re not interested in being in a good mood, check out the first trailer for What Maisie Knew after the break.

What Maisie Knew opens later this year. [Yahoo! Movies]
