Maudie

Thursday, Sept. 14 @ 7 pm / Galaxy Cinemas / Sault Ste. Marie, ON

Director: Aisling Walsh
Canada/Ireland 2016
English / 115 minutes
Rating: PG-13 for some thematic content and brief sexuality

Determined to prove her independence, Maud (Sally Hawkins)
answers an ad for a live-in housekeeper for the reclusive Everett (Ethan Hawke), but her artistic skills quickly eclipse her domestic duties and transform her into one of Canada’s most celebrated folk artists. An inspirational story of this young artist whose talent and determination allowed her to surmount the obstacles in her way, Maudie is also a tale of two lonely souls who find their place in the world together. Touching, funny and wonderfully acted.

An unsentimental but emotional film for anyone who suspects in their heart of hearts that suffering really is the only thing that makes anyone worth a damn. Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader

I walked into Maudie pretty sure of what it would be:  sweet, quirky, problematic in places and inspiring in others.  It was all that.  But I wasn’t expecting to walk away with a new hero. Paul Asay, Plugged in

As unassuming and gentle as its subject, Maudie breaks your heart with its infectious positivity and an outstanding Sally Hawkins, who can
always be relied on for an emotionally sturdy, big-hearted performance.
