Critic Consensus: Maudie's talented cast -- particularly Sally Hawkins in the title role -- breathe much-needed depth into a story that only skims the surface of a fascinating life and talent.

Critic Reviews for Maudie
This Irish-Canadian drama tells the true story of Maud Lewis (played beautifully by Sally Hawkins).
Hawkins disappears into the performance, capturing Maud's physical limitations but also the light in her eyes, the sly humor in her observations about life -- and her gift for seeing the greatest beauty in the simplest things.
[Hawkins is] such a vivid presence, so alert to what can be mined from the space in between her lines, she lifts "Maudie" above the pedestrian.
Hawke is good at playing bad, but Hawkins is better, rendering, in "Maudie," a portrait of a woman that feels raw, real and revelatory.
One way to get through the long, agonizing experience of "Maudie" is to convince yourself it's a comedy. The spectacle of the actors flailing in a vacuum makes this possible, but intermittently, so the relief comes only in bursts.
