WINNER! PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD –Vancouver International Film Festival

The life of legendary Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis is painted in exquisite detail in this impeccably acted, incredibly affecting biopic. At the beating heart of Aisling Walsh’s film is Sally Hawkins (beloved for her performances in Happy-Go-Lucky and Made in Dagenham), who not only captures the contorted physicality of this self-taught painter, who contended with rheumatoid arthritis, but also exudes the creative spirit raging within her.

The film’s backdrop is undeniably cinematic: the rugged beauty and expansive vistas of 1930s Nova Scotia. Likewise, its primary setting is unspeakably intimate: the comically tiny one-room house that Maud shares with misanthropic fish peddler Everett (Ethan Hawke), initially as his housekeeper but soon as his wife. She’s inspired by the natural splendour surrounding their hovel to take up a paint brush. Her exuberance proves infectious, ensuring that when she intones "I was loved" near the film’s end, we each count ourselves amongst those who adored her. –Vancouver International Film Festival
