Friday Film Club: Maudie
November 3, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our Friday Film Club in November builds on our house is a home theme with: Who to invite?
MAUDIE, is based on the true story of folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins) and the unlikely romance between Maud and a hardened reclusive bachelor, Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke).
Maud, a bright-eyed, intelligent woman, hunched with crippled hands from arthritis, yearns to be independent and to live away from her overly protective family. She escapes her solitary existence in her aunt’s home through her art, dreaming away the days, until in her early 30s she finds, and answers, an advertisement for a housekeeper.
Everett Lewis is a 40 year old bachelor who owes nothing to anyone. He lives in a 10×12 foot house that has neither running water nor electricity, but at least it’s all his. He is his own boss and has everything he needs, except maybe a woman to clean his house and cook his meals.
Fall Films in November start at 1:00 PM in the library’s upstairs theater and for adults 18 & up.
Hot Tea, Pastries & Popcorn served and discussion after all movies.
