Maudie

October 30 @ 7:30 pm

Sunshine Coast Film Society

Ireland/Canada 2016, 115min, drama. Director: Aisling Walsh.

 This 2016 VIFF People’s Choice Award winner dramatizes the struggle of Maud Lewis who, in spite of extreme poverty and crippling arthritis, became one of Canada’s premier folk artists. It is also the tale of an unlikely romance. Determined to escape her protective but unsupportive family Maud finds work as a housekeeper for a reclusive fish monger. He reluctantly comes to appreciate her as she constantly strives to fulfill her passion to create.

Tickets  $5 members or $9 for single-event members.

Hawkins turns in a heartfelt performance as real-life painter Maud Lewis (1903-1970), carrying a biographical drama that’s lovely and gentle without ever becoming soft or sentimental.
— Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
