What Maisie Knew is one of the best movies that I've ever, ever seen.
The casting is perfect, and the performances are heartrendingly well done.
A charming, vulnerable little girl deals with being born to incompatible, very busy parents. Simply put, they don't have time to take care of her, despite their protestations of love for her. She moves from being the bone of contention in a nasty divorce battle to being an inconvenience that neither of her unavailable parents is equipped to deal with.
Being a very small child, Maisie cannot effect a resolution to the adults' problems until at the end of the movie she makes a hard choice, literally on the spur of the moment.
This movie is worth watching, especially for every parent or parent-to-be.
