Director: AISLING WALSH

Writer(s): Sherry White

Star(s): Sally Hawkins, Ethan Hawke

Synopsis:

Maudie is based on the true story of Nova Scotia painter Maud Lewis, who overcame the physical challenge of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis to become one of Canada’s best known and most loved folk artists.

The fragile but determined Maudie (Hawkins) yearns for independence from her over-protective family and dreams of creating art. When she answers an ad for a housekeeper placed by a reclusive fish seller (Hawke), she gains more than just the freedom she wanted, as the unlikely pair develops a relationship that is intensely intimate and just as challenging.

A touching and inspiring story about following one’s dreams in spite of life’s obstacles, Maudie is an absolute charmer.

Maudie breaks your heart with its infectious positivity.”

— Tomris Laffly, Time Out
