Millennium Entertainment has inked a domestic distribution deal for the drama What Maisie Knew.
The film, which stars Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan as the parents of titular Maisie, was acquired for $2 million five days after first screening for buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel, Maisie delves into the effect of a bitter divorce on the couple’s 6-year-old daughter. Alexander Skarsgard also stars.
Despite strong reviews, the film’s heavy subject matter may have tamped interest in the drama. Still, the deal marks one of only a handful of significant acquisitions thus far as the festival begins to wind down.
Nancy Doyne and Carroll Cartwright wrote the screenplay.
WME and Cinetic repped the filmmakers.
