Aisling Walsh / Maudie

We talk to debut director Aisling Walsh about her biopic of the painter Maud Lewis (played by Sally Hawkins), who lived with her husband Everett (played by Ethan Hawke) in Nova Scotia and suffered from severe arthritis. Walsh talks us through how they created Maud’s house, why Sally Hawkins was ideal for the role, and why she didn’t take any artwork from the set of her first film.
