Cinema & Kikiplexx: Maudie
An arthritic Nova Scotia woman works as a housekeeper for a poor fishmonger while she hones her skills as an artist and eventually becomes a beloved figure in the community. 1930's rural Nova Scotia. Maud Dowley, suffers from rheumatoid arthritis.
Because of her difficulty walking, she is often mistaken as a stupid, incapable woman even by her family. Maud, seeking independence, takes a job as housekeeper for brusque Everett Lewis, a poor fish seller. Due to their antagonistic relationship Maud, to keep herself happy, begins to paint the interior of the house with happy pictures and paint similar pictures on small cards. These are how she wants to see the world. An affecting film with beautiful photography of Newfoundland & Nova Scotia.
