Actress Sally Hawkins is outstanding in this touching, uplifting and magical biography about Nova Scotia’s world-renowned folk painter Maud Lewis. Born into an unloving family and suffering from severe arthritis, she nonetheless created a good life begun in desperate hardship that bloomed into enduring love. She escapes from her family to clean house for gruff, miserly and reclusive fish monger Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) and they eventually marry. Not till many years later are her paintings discovered by the outside world which surprises them both.
