Critic Reviews for Maudie
Maud's life was constricted, but her gaze was expansive. And so is her movie.
An oddly affecting love story about burying the hurt and trudging forward in the face of pain and finding your own version of happiness.
An unsentimental but emotional film for anyone who suspects in their heart of hearts that suffering really is the only thing that makes anyone worth a damn.
What shines through is the beauty of Guy Godfree's cinematography - the light has a lovely, soft stillness to it, like a painting - and a remarkable performance by Hawkins, whose impossibly wide smile seems to bring the sun.
Audience Reviews for Maudie
Fantastic acting by Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke (wasn't John Hawkes available) in a story that proves love can be expressed in so many different forms. Beautifully shot capturing the isolation and simplicity of that place and time . Hawkins might be the female Daniel Day Lewis of our times. (7-22-17)
