A true-life tale of love and inspiration is this week’s big screen offering from the Dunamaise Arts Centre, in the Irish-Canadian film Maudie.
Maud is a determined young woman who, despite suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, is desperate to live independently and gain the freedom to paint colourful art.
On applying to become a housekeeper for a reclusive fish peddler, the two social misfits form a bond that soon leads to marriage. As Maudie’s creative output increases, a chance encounter leads to wider recognition of her talent.
This gentle biopic from Irish filmmaker Aisling Walsh (Song for a Raggy Boy) is both an unlikely love story and an inspiring tale of Canada's most celebrated folk artists.
Maudie screens at 8pm this Wednesday, September 13.
