Check out the official trailer of Maudie, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Aisling Walsh and starring Sally Hawkins, Ethan Hawke, Kari Matchett, Gabrielle Rose, Zachary Bennett, and Billy MacLellan:
Plot synopsis: “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.”

I guess Maudie (Maud Lewis) wasn’t an ugly duckling after all, she was actually a beautiful swan!
The US release date of the movie Maudie is set to June 16, 2017. :)
