Movie Info

MAUDIE, based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (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 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.

The heart and mind of Maudie are always in the right place.

Expressive acting by Hawkins and Hawke smooths out narrative bumps, creating a portrait of a woman in thrall to art and nature and a couple whose love resisted hardship and defied definition.

I Hawkins . . . twists herself into a wry, mousy character who shuffles through a world of unforgiving 1930s morality, when a woman with physical afflictions could be viewed as a mental incompetent.

April 23, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The simplicity of mixing creative crafts with everyday chores recalls the village life that dominated the planet for thousands of years, and the straightforward Maudie, an Irish-Canadian coproduction, pretty much sticks to that approach.

Georgia Straight

This is a painter whose canvas was her life, and whose life her canvas. Maudie is a magnificent celebration of both.

It's beautifully shot, even if the painting often feels incidental.
