Maudie, based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie 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. The film Maudie charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, while at the same time showing Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man, and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
