This is the trailer to an excellent movie.
Maudie is a 2016 biographical drama film
directed by Aisling Walsh
and starring Sally Hawkins
and Ethan Hawke
. A co-production of Ireland
, the film is about the life of folk artist Maud Lewis
, who painted in Nova Scotia. In the story, Maud (Hawkins) struggles with arthritis, memory of a lost child, and a family that doubts her ability, before moving in with a surly fish peddler (Hawke) as a housekeeper. Despite their differing personalities, they marry as her art gains in popularity. The film was shot in Newfoundland and Labrador
, requiring a re-creation of Lewis's famously small house.
Watch how art transforms every relationship and interaction for Maudie.
