Movie Night: Maudie
Saturday, 15 April 2023, 7:00pm-10:00pm
Movie night at the Gallery! Join us for a screening of the award-winning film Maudie, a biopic about the life and work of artist Maud Lewis. Tickets include admission to the Scotiabank Maud Lewis Gallery, the Maud Lewis exhibition, an introduction from Shannon Parker, Laufer Curator of Collections, and a snack and refreshment. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Ages 19+.
MAUDIE, based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. MAUDIE charts Everett's efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie's deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
