This movie is really really good. The director has some absolutely beautiful shots. The young girl, Maisie's actress does very well for a child her age. Although, this movie is hard to watch. The parents are always fighting, the mother marries to get back at the father who married, and they often neglect Maisie. The language is bad when her two parents fight. Maisie does find good in Lincoln and Margo, her parents' spouses. Eventually, after the father leaves, the mother basically gives up so maisie can be with Lincoln and Margo, who are much better guardians.
