  • What Maisie Knew 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Aug, 2014

    What a great film this turned out to be. In honesty, before stumbling upon it through Netflix I had never heard of it. A delightful little film about a little girl (Onata Aprile) who holds so much sorrow in her eyes but when she smiles you smile.

He portrays a gentle soul to whom Maisie is instantly drawn, becoming the loving father figure she's never had.

    ★½ Watched 26 Aug, 2014

    Starts off reasonably ok but becomes progressively worse with some awful cheese.....and not the good kind.
