Rated PG for some sexually suggestive scenes and mature subject matter
Set in rural Nova Scotia, this is the unlikely romance between the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) and the fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins) he has hired to be his housekeeper. Bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, Maudie yearns to make their growing relationship work. But she also yearns, passionately, to create art. From Irish-born director Aisling Walsh, Maudie is a film biography of Maud Lewis (1903–1970), one of Canada’s most beloved folk artists. The film won seven Canadian Screen Awards and several Irish Film & Television awards. A New York Time’s Critic's Pick, Maudie opened the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival where it won the People’s Choice Award.
