From the Sydney Film Festival 2017
Based on the true story of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, 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. She also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. Maudie charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame. PG from Aug 24. Local cinemas include Palace Norton St, Dendy Newtown and Palace Verona.

“The film glows with the kind of sweetness last seen in John Crowley’s Brooklyn. All it asks of you is an open heart”
Time Out NY
“A powerful, Oscar-worthy performance by Sally Hawkins”
“Richly layered, deeply felt. Ethan Hawke as we’ve rarely seen him.”
