Maudie centres around the titular arthritic lady from Nova Scotia, Maud Lewis, played by Sally Hawkins, who works as a housekeeper while she hones her skills as an artist and eventually becomes a beloved figure in the community.
Directed by Aisling Walsh, and also starring Ethan Hawke, Kari Matchett, Billy MacLellan and Zachary Bennett, the trailer shows this has had many critical plaudits, and I think Sally is a great actress, ever since her “Ping” in Ed Reardon’s Week on Radio 4, but I wasn’t wowed by this.
If you were, then you might have a wait, as Maudie does not yet have a UK or US release date.
