Maudie
Directed by Aisling Walsh



Maud Lewis is among the most inspiring figures in Canadian Art. Afflicted with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, she spent her early life dismissed for what was presumed to be her limited ability. But Lewis' colourful paintings established her as one of our country's premier folk artists. Starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, this moving film explores Lewis' life in all its heartbreak and triumph.

Though set in the past, Maudie speaks to the present in many ways - this is, after all, a tale of a woman asserting herself as a generator of both art and commerce. But it is also a story of the powerful creativity to transform a life and touch a soul.
