This is a fantastic movie

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.

Heart-Wrenching Drama For Mature Kids.

Parents, this movie based on the celebrated novel by Henry James has some heated arguing and thematic material, but is fine for mature kids. Violence is pretty low, but includes heart-wrenching scenes of arguing. Some people may get upset watching this film, because of the elements of divorce and child imperilment. No sexuality. There Is some language, which includes s--t and f--k, but nothing else. Rated PG-13 For Emotional Thematic Material, Some Brief Violence, & Language.
