Award Winning Actor Gabrielle Rose plays Aunt Ida in the critically acclaimed feature film MAUDIE starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke that opens in New York on June 6th

Gabrielle just completed four roles in Jessie nominated Angels in America Part One- Millennium Approaches

One of Canada’s most respected actors with over 160 film and television credits, Gabrielle Rose is very proud of her role in the feature film Maudie. Gabrielle has been invited to attend Maudie when it opens at AMC Lowes Theater in Lincoln Square on June 6th. The film has received overwhelming success in film festivals world-wide and in theatres across Canada. In Maudie Gabrielle plays Maud’s Aunt Ida. The film stars Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky, Blue Jasmine) and Ethan Hawke (Before Midnight, Training Day, Boyhood). Gabrielle had to age twenty-five plus years for the second half of her role in the film. It is a female driven production, with Irish Director Aisling Walsh, written by Sherry White and produced by Mary Young Leckie, Mary Sexton, Heather Haldane and Robert M Cooper. Maudie is an iconic Canadian story about a female folk artist.

With unforgettable performances by Academy Award® nominees Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, this Irish-Canadian co-production is based on a true story, of an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent to live away from her protective family (Aunt Ida) and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. Maudie charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.

Gabrielle is nominated for best supporting actress/Large theatre for the upcoming Jessie Awards honoring the best in Vancouver’s vibrant theatre scene for her four roles of two men – The Rabbi and Dr. Henry and two women – Hannah and Ethel Rosenberg in Angels in America/Part One- Millennium Approaches which has 9 nominations including Best Production.

The Promotion Peope - Lawrence and Holloman

Is happiness determined by our outlook on life?  Or can our destiny be changed … by another.

This is Kowalchuk’s feature film directorial debut whose short films and stage direction have garnered him several awards.

“Lawrence & Holloman is the culmination of a lot of hard work and sacrifice, from an amazing team. And when you start out on this journey to make a film, you never know how or even IF you’ll find an audience. To be recognized in this way, in my hometown, is an incredible honour. Growing up in Edmonton, the community of artists and audience taught me to take risks and to follow my heart; lessons I haven’t forgotten, and that have helped make this film a reality.” Director Matthew Kowalchuk

The film stars Ben Cotton (Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome, Cinemanovels) and Daniel Arnold (The PI Experiment, Penguins) with Katharine Isabelle (American Mary, Ginger Snaps, Cinemanovels) & Amy Matysio (inSAYSAble, Single White Spenny).
