MAUDIE (2016 - Canada - 115 MIN.)
Directed by Aisling Walsh
Maud Lewis is among the most inspiring figures in Canadian art. Afflicted with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, she spent her early life dismissed for what was presumed to be her limited ability. But Lewis' colourful paintings, made on surfaces ranging from beaverboard to cookie sheets, established her as one of our country's premier folk artists. Starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke (also appearing at the Festival in The Magnificent Seven), this moving film explores Lewis' life in all its heartbreak and triumph. Academy Award nominees Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky, Blue Jasmine) and Ethan Hawke star in the true story of Maud Lewis, who overcame the physical challenge of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis to become one of Canada’s premier folk artists.
