What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Maudie is a biopic about arthritic Nova Scotia painter Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins) and her relationship with her rough, anti-social husband, Everett (Ethan Hawke). Characters talk about a baby who was born deformed and subsequently died, and there are some non-graphic sexual situations. In two scenes, a man and a woman who are sleeping in the same bed try to have sex with one another but don't go all the way through with it. In another scene, a man hits a woman in the face; there's also some shouting, insulting, arguing, and lost tempers. The main character is a lifelong smoker who eventually becomes gravely ill with emphysema. Infrequent language includes uses of "arse" and "idiot." Maud is far from perfect, but she perseveres against many obstacles and achieves fame and success doing what she loves. At the same time, she continues to live simply, without letting money or possessions weigh her down.
