Sallie Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in this touching Canadian-Irish biopic of the Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis – often known as “the Canadian Grandma Moses.” Hawkins has been particularly praised for her portrayal of the quirky, chain-smoking, severely arthritic title character, while Hawke plays against type as her boorish, fish-peddler husband.
