maudie

go and see this charming film about a woman, Maud who has crippling arthritis and her relationship with a fish pedlar  – they lived in poverty for most of their life, but her joy was painting;  and despite the painful disease, she managed to paint these charming and naive paintings that depict local life .  its beautifully shot,  set in novia scotia – it shows the hard bleak winters,  the stunning landscapes – but its mainly a strange love story set in a one room cabin between two people, who didnt demand much from life.  both Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke play the characters amazingly.   it also makes you think that we should all live so simply.   its based on a true story and  you definitely need a handkerchief!

and here is my little maudie
