Opening in theaters nationally on May 24th is the new drama What Maisie Knew, which is based on the popular book of the same name by Henry James. The film was helmed by the directorial team of Scott McGehee and David Siegel (Bee Season), and features an all-star cast that includes Academy Award-nominee Julianne Moore (The English Teacher), Alexander Skarsgard (Disconnect), Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder), and newcomer Onata Aprile.
IAR's New York correspondent Dana Gardner recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Julianne Moore to talk about her work on What Maisie Knew. The Academy Award-nominated actress discussed her new movie, what attracts her to projects and ultimately drew her to this script, her complex character, playing a rockstar, working with young actress Onata Aprile, collaborating with directing team Scott McGehee and David Siegel, and what novel she would love to adapt into a film some day.
