Quite what this smart, grown-up New York drama about the impact of battling parents on a blameless six-year-old child is doing hidden after midnight is a mystery. With the tasty pairing of Julianne Moore (playing a singer) and Steve Coogan (an art dealer) as the separating middle-class couple, Joanna Vanderham (TV’s The Paradise) as the nanny, excellent newcomer Onata Aprile as the kid-in-the-middle and charismatic Alexander Skarsgard as her new step-dad, what’s not to like? Writers Carroll Cartwright and Nancy Doyne and co-directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel (The Deep End) have fashioned a believable and moving human drama out of an 1897 Henry James novel and made it work for the 21st century. Please do record it.
