MAUDIE

Maudie is based on the true story of folk artist Maud Lewis (Academy Award nominee Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine, Happy-Go-Lucky) and the unlikely romance between her and a hardened reclusive bachelor, Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke, Boyhood). A bright-eyed, intelligent woman, hunched with crippled hands from arthritis, Maud yearns to be independent and to live away from her overly protective family. She escapes her solitary existence in her aunt’s home through her art, until in her early 30s she answers an advertisement for a housekeeper. Everett Lewis is a 40-year-old bachelor who owes nothing to anyone. Abandoned by his parents at a very young age, he has nevertheless managed to become a proud and self-sufficient man. When Maud answers the ad, Everett hesitates at first, but quickly finds himself falling in love. Maud’s determination for her art, along with her partnership with Everett, blossoms into a career as a famous folk artist, bringing them closer together in ways they never imagined.

EVENT DETAILS

THE BIG SICK

The romantic comedy The Big Sick tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani, “Silicon Valley”), who connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents (Holly Hunter, Ray Romano) whom he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. Based on the real-life courtship between co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. Directed by Michael Showalter (Hello, My Name Is Doris).

BEATRIZ AT DINNER

At an elegant dinner party, conversation between a soft-spoken holistic healer and a hard-nosed businessman explodes into a bitter clash of cultures in the latest provocative film from director Miguel Arteta and screenwriter Mike White (The Good Girl, Chuck & Buck). Beatriz (Salma Hayek), a self-effacing and spiritual immigrant from Mexico, has spent her adult life caring for the sick while neglecting herself. Stranded at a client’s luxurious Newport Beach home overnight, her well-meaning employer Kathy (Connie Britton) insists she join them for a dinner party that evening. At an intimate and sumptuous celebration of her husband’s latest business venture, Beatriz is introduced to Doug (John Lithgow), a ruthless billionaire real-estate developer. She listens uncomfortably while Doug brags about his aggressive business tactics, but when he boasts about shooting a rhino in Africa, she can no longer hold her tongue. As opposing worldviews collide over a dinner table, Beatriz’s pent-up outrage spills out in a way that surprises even herself. Exploring the widening gulf between the world’s haves and have-nots with fierce insight and unexpected humor, Beatriz at Dinner addresses contemporary controversies, from economic inequality and conservation to the necessity of simple human kindness. Also starring Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker, Chloë Sevigny and David Warshofsky.
