Friday, December 8th 'Maudie' (PG)

The true story of Canadian folk artist Maude Lewis.

Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in this true story of gifted, arthritic Canadian folk painter Maud Lewis and her unlikely romance with the reclusive Everett Lewis.

"Bad-natured loner Everett (Hawke) places an ad for a housekeeper and doesn't know what to make of the applicant. Maudie (Hawkins) is hunched over with hands gnarled by arthritis, but she's eager to take the unappealing job. Gruff and boorish, Everett treats Maudie poorly, but she patiently chips away at his tough exterior. Her arthritis makes painting difficult but it's liberating for Maudie; soon, she's painted every corner of their house, and her paintings develop a loyal following that leads to her eventual fame."

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. "Fantastic acting by Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke in a story that proves love can be expressed in so many different forms. Beautifully shot capturing the isolation and simplicity of that place and time. Hawkins might be the female Daniel Day-Lewis of our times"
