Cast: Sally Hawkins, Ethan Hawke, Kari Matchett, Zachary Bennett
Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke deliver exquisite performances in Aisling Walsh’s biopic of Maud Lewis, who despite suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis became one of Canada’s most celebrated outsider artists. Nova Scotia, 1937: Maud Dowley (Hawkins) lives with her aunt until becoming housekeeper to local fish peddler Everett Lewis (Hawke) and, two outcasts together, they form a bond. But her artistic talents are still unrecognised until a visitor arrives from New York and commissions a painting, beginning Maudie’s ascent to extraordinary fame. With sensitive, complex performances from both leads, enriched by gorgeous imagery of Nova Scotia, Maudie is an inspiring story about a woman who transcended her disability through art.
