"What Maisie Knew" film based on Henry James novel is coming soon!



"What Maisie Knew" the modern day adaptation of Henry James' novel of  divorce, really is coming in May!

I was just about to give up hope; it had been so long without any news of the What Maisie Knew adaptation based on the Henry James novella. After being picked up at TIFF, the film was reportedly going to be released this spring. And wonder of wonders, it looks like it's actually happening. According to Entertainment Weekly, the current plan is for a limited release; hopefully it will roll out nationally after that. When I saw the first trailer back in September, I shared my enthusiasm with you here. I'm always nervous about modern adaptations, as I said in my first post, based on the trailer, this one looks like they might have got it right. But just as you can't judge a book by a cover, the same goes for films and trailers, I'm afraid. As always, I'll have to wait and see. Still I definitely will want to see it - better brush up my Henry James ASAP.

I'm a huge fan of Julianne Moore but it's the little girl that gets me! Her name is Onata Aprile. 

What do you think of the brand new trailer?

  1. That looks amazing! When I first saw you had a post about Maisie, I first assumed it was an adaptation of the Jacqueline Winspear books about Maisie Dobbs, Had to read the first two sentences twice to clear it up.

    I'm not at all familiar with that Henry James story, so I will have to look it up. Just goes to show that when a story is good, it transcends its time period.

    1. That says a lot about my writing style...ha ha! Honestly, I haven't read it either but I do like Henry James. Portrait of a Lady was one of my favorite books once upon a time - actually it had to battle it out with Pride and Prejudice - I'm looking forward to this adaptation. Like you I'm also looking forward to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and hoping they do a better job than they did with Vampire Hunter.
      I've only read the first Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs book and had mixed feelings. Do you have a favorite?
