We will screen WHAT MAISIE KNEW September 13.

Friday, September 13 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.What Maisie Knew (2013) Starring Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgård, Onata Aprile, Joanna Vanderham, and Steve Coogan; Rated R; 99 minutes. Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.

A contemporary reimagining of Henry James' novel, this film tells the story of a captivating little girl's struggle for grace in the midst of her parents' bitter custody battle. Told through the eyes of the title's heroine, Maisie navigates this ever-widening turmoil with a six-year-old's innocence, charm and generosity of spirit.

"The result is a film that deeply engages us on multiple levels. Not only do we wonder what Maisie knows and how she knows it, we want to get this seedling to a place where she won't have to be transplanted every day." -- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Intimate, unnerving and entirely addictive." -- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
