The true story of the unlikely romance between reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) and his housekeeper, the fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins, in an exceptional performance). Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, and 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.
