MAUDIE is set in idyllic Nova Scotia, which looks beautiful on screen and inspires Maud’s artworks, and features award worthy performances from Oscar nominated actress Sally Hawkins as Maud Lewis and Oscar nominated actor Ethan Hawke as her husband Everett Lewis.
Based on a true story, MAUDIE is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. MAUDIE charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself form being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
