Rye Film Club’s July Film on Friday July 6 is Maudie (2016 – 115 minutes). Based on a true story set in 1930s Nova Scotia, this is the tale of an unlikely romance between Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) and his housekeeper, Maudie (Sally Hawkins). He is a reclusive fish seller, whilst she is a fragile and arthritic, yet determined, woman, somewhat downtrodden by an uncaring family. To brighten her life she paints happy pictures to adorn the house, as her life begins to blossom. The film is at Rye Community Centre with a 7pm start. Doors open at 6:30pm.
