This Triple F-Rated film is the tortoise and hare story of Canadian Folk artist Maud Lewis, whose colourful and exuberant paintings still chime brightly today. Maudie lives with her overbearing aunt in 1930s Nova Scotia. Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis as a child, she is stuck in the house and outcast from society until she answers an advert for a housekeeper for another outsider, fish peddling spiky recluse, Everett.  Her artistic talents are undiscovered by the wider world until a visitor arrives from New York and seeing one of Maudie's paintings, commissions one: kickstarting a journey that would eventually see one of her artworks hanging in the White House. Incredible performances set against the beautiful Canadian coast create a passionate portrait of an inspiring independent woman and an unusual love story to life, landscape and triumph against the odds.
