Board member Richard Wilson of Powell said, “At the beginning of each season, the eight members of NWFS meet to narrow a full list of very different cinematic possibilities to a short list that becomes the season’s lineup. Somehow, this crazy democratic process has produced series after series that local audiences have sometimes passionately loved and, occasionally, angrily hated. We really appreciate our faithful member support for our experiments in alternative programming.”
In Maudie, a withdrawn man employs a seemingly frail yet resolute woman as his housekeeper. The bright-eyed Maudie lives with a physical disability and a determination to become independent from her family and to pursue her art. The movie reveals their evolving relationship in unexpected plot twists.
