Our next film, on Tuesday 25 September at 19:45, is Maudie, starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. It’s a biographical portrait of Maud Dowley (Hawkins), a painter of folk art in 1930s Nova Scotia, Canada. Maud is crippled by rheumatoid arthritis and treated as an idiot by the family with whom she lives. Then she finds herself a job as housekeeper for a nearby fish peddler (Hawke), marries him, and starts to paint. A touching human story of survival and the power of art.
