AUGUST 19 – 24
MAUDIE, based on a true story, 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 and 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 as a folk painter.

“Maudie is a work of art.” – Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“What shines through is the beauty of Guy Godfree’s cinematography – the light has a lovely, soft stillness to it, like a painting – and a remarkable performance by Hawkins, whose impossibly wide smile seems to bring the sun.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
“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.” – Tomris Laffly, Time Out
