Julianne Moore has a penchant for playing complicated, restless wives: take The Hours, The Kids Are All Right and Atom Egoyan’s Toronto-set Chloe (The Rivoli never seemed sexier). She returns to TIFF this year in a similar role for What Maisie Knew, a New York-based modernization of the Henry James novel that tells the story of a divorce between an aging, type-A rock ’n’ roll icon (Moore) and an amiable but clueless art dealer played by Steve Coogan, who’ll also be here (as will Sheriff Eric Northman, a.k.a. Alexander Skarsgård).
