Opening Aug. 9, "The Maiden" features a story about an all-woman crew that left an everlasting mark on the male-dominated world of sailboat crew.

Two new films — “Maiden” and “The Chambermaid” — open Aug. 9 at the Mary Ripema Ross Media Arts Center. Also showing is “Wild Rose.”

“Maiden,” showing through Aug. 22, is set in 1989 and showcases a competitive all-female sailboat crew that was nearly inconceivable in the manly world of open-ocean yacht racing.

Led by Tracy Edwards, a 26-year-old skipper, the team — doubted by all — shocked, inspired and transfixed the sailing world during the global, 32,000-mile Whitbread race. Edwards was awarded the 1990 yachtsman of the year award after the race. She was the first woman to ever win the award and was named a member of the Order of the British Empire.

“Maiden” is rated PG for language, thematic elements, some suggestive content and brief smoking images. It shows through Aug. 22.

Directed by Lila Avilès, “The Chambermaid” turns the monotonous workday of Eve (played by Gabriela Cartol), a cleaning lady at a high-end Mexico City hotel, into a film of rich detail.

Featuring extended scenes in guest rooms, hallways and cleaning facilities, the minimalist film brings to the fore Eve’s hopes, dreams and desires. The film is a salute to the invisible women who are caretakers within the hotel industry.

“The Chambermaid,” which is unrated, shows through Aug 15 at the Ross.

"Wild Rose" is a film that follows the journey of a country singer chasing musical stardom. The film stars Jessie Buckley as Rose-Lynn Harlan, a Scottish mother who is released from prison in Ireland and travels to Nashville for a chance at making it big in the country scene. Oscar-nominee Julie Walters is also featured in the film, playing Harlan's mother.

"Wild Rose" has been extended at the Ross through Aug. 15. It is rated R for language throughout, some sexuality and brief drug material.
