Maudie Rated 12A


Dir. Aisling Walsh. Canada, 2016. 1h 56m. Starring Sally Hawkins, Ethan Hawke, Kari Matchett, Zachary Bennett, Gabrielle Rose, Billy MacLellan.

A touching drama based on the life of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, beautifully portrayed by Sally Hawkins. The film focuses on the unlikely romance that blossoms between Maud and the bad-tempered fishmonger who hires her as his live-in housekeeper.

'Aisling Walsh knows how to balance the comedy and the pathos as she takes us through her subject's life and chronicles her unlikely emergence as an artist.' ★★★★ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

'The only fireworks here are of the indoor kind, but this sensitive, beautifully acted film lingers long after the final frame. And the Newfoundland locations are breathtaking.' ★★★★ Liz Beardsworth, Empire Magazine
