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.

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.
