Begorrathon 2017: Maudie


Some might think it a bit of stretch to include a film on a Canadian topic in the Begorrathon, but Aisling Walsh’s Maudie is an Irish-Canadian co-production, and much of the talent behind the camera is from Ireland.

The film tells the true story of folk artist Maud Lewis, brilliantly played by Sally Hawkins, and her fish peddler husband, Everett (a grunting Ethan Hawke).

Maudie made its Irish premiere last month at the Audi Dublin Film Festival. It will go on general release later this year, and when it does, be sure to see it, and bring tissues.

My Film Ireland review of the film is here.
