Celebrating International Artist’s Day!
Oct 25: Maudie (2016) Directed by Aisling Walsh. 116 min. Ireland, Canada. In English. PG-13.
Sally Hawkins gives an award-winning performance as celebrated Canadian artist Maud Lewis, who, despite debilitating arthritis and a difficult marriage, became famous for her lively, cheerful folk art and her unflappably positive outlook on life. Though the brutality of Lewis’ personal struggles makes it difficult to call this a feel-good film, her artwork nonetheless acts as a powerful reminder that no matter what our personal circumstance, we can still appreciate the simple things in life.
