What Maisie Knew (2012)

About a week ago I watched a movie that really really got under my skin. The only reason I watched it was because it kept showing up on my Netflix recommendations over and over and I thought if I just watched it then it would stop showing up.

WOW. Ultimate cry-my-eyes-out-bawl-fest that turned out to be.

There was just SO MUCH in this movie that just reminded me of different parts of my own life and my childhood I was completely emotionally blown away – I spent at least a solid hour bawling my eyes out without really knowing exactly why. Being schlepped around to parents’ work, having complete strangers watch over me, my parents constantly forgetting to pick me up from school, making my own food at age 6, parents fighting, parents going away far for long periods of time, being used as a pawn between parents…the list goes on. BOOM. POW. BAWL.
