Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in the EXCLUSIVE first trailer for Maudie
The incredible true story of Canadian artist Maud Lewis comes to the big screen this spring.
We are so excited to debut the EXCLUSIVE first trailer for this film that shines a light on a relatively unknown Canadian figure. We caught the film when it played the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, and can attest to the fact that Sally Hawkins will be a major awards contender for her performance.
Maud Lewis battled with arthritis from a young age and it made life both physically and emotionally difficult, yet she always persevered and accomplished more than most could. A fearless woman, Maud always pursued her desires, and became a renowned artist even despite how physically hard it was for her to even hold a paint brush.
Ethan Hawke co-stars as her headstrong husband, and both actors turn in some of their best work. Set in Nova Scotia and with Canada's natural beauty on display, Maudie is a wonderful biopic that is a must-see this year. The film opens in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal on April 14th and will expand in the following weeks.
