Award-winning Irish filmmaker Aisling Walsh (SONG FOR A RAGGY BOY) directs Academy Award® nominee Sally Hawkins in this acclaimed biopic about beloved Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis. Exploring Lewis' life in all of its heartbreak and triumph, Walsh captures the trajectory of her incredible rise to artistic fame alongside her unlikely romance with Everett (Ethan Hawke), a reclusive fishmonger who initially hires her to be his housekeeper. Stricken with arthritis from a young age, Maudie is fragile yet determined, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands. She yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and, most importantly, to create art. As Everett and Maudie navigate their complex relationship, her determination and talent blossoms into a career as a celebrated artist. Sally Hawkins received the 2017 National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Actress for her work in MAUDIE and Guillermo del Toro's THE SHAPE OF WATER.
