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.

**** ‘In a performance that echoes her breakthrough role in Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky, Hawkins embraces this fiercely independent spirit, broken body and softly-spoken soul.’ ~ Vicky Roach (Daily Telegraph – Australia)
