A terrific performance from Sally Hawkins carries this biopic about an artist that has physical limitations and her unique marriage.

The film, if observed too closely, is not quite to scale here and slightly out of kilter there, but who cares? Art isn't science. It doesn't have answers. It doesn't have to have the answers. Not when it's beautiful.

Hawke tries hard but never quite convinced me to buy him as Everett as much as Hawkins does as Maud. Still, the two leads do have a nice rapport that makes the relationship feel organic and honest.

Hawkins grabs and holds the scenes, not with overdramatics, but with humour and delectable gestures.

Maudie is a riveting and brilliantly acted insight into what is to most of us the life of a little known to us folk artist, though beloved in Canada, who against all the odds triumphed over her surroundings.

Who would have known that behind the gentle, smiling face and diminutive frame lay years of pain and struggle? And yet, in spite of it all, she dipped her brushes in colourful paints and gave us nostalgic visions of bright-eyed innocence.

The two lead actors, and the careful direction by Aisling Walsh are what make this film work.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.9/5
August 23, 2018
An intimate portrait of a complex life, the film delivers rewards for its unusual circumstances, much like Maud Lewis herself.
August 22, 2018
Hawke has more of a mountain to climb when it comes to being convincing as an ordinary Nova Scotia bod, but even he comes good by the end.

As Maud, Sally Hawkins gives an outstanding physical performance matched by a quiet resolve and a somewhat mischievous sense of humour.
December 28, 2017
Hawkins is outstanding in depicting the physical impairments that the artist struggled with, as well as the fiercely loving spirit that kept her going through incredible hardships.

December 26, 2017
A bleak but uplifting and well-acted biopic.
December 26, 2017
Both Hawkins and Hawke are very good in Maudie, and if you're looking to qualify it you'd arrive first at the fact that they both effect physical transformations of a sort.

December 18, 2017
... it's a sweet film (despite the couple's unrelenting poverty and Maud's often difficult day-to-day life), and both actors manage to overcome somewhat mannered performances to be quite affecting.
December 13, 2017
In this film Maud is resilient, but Hawkins conveys this in subtle ways as Maud's creativity flourishes and her confidence grows.
December 11, 2017
As a physically handicapped folk artist, Sally Hawkins's performance is even better than it was as a cleaner in "The Shape of Water."

December 1, 2017
This enchanting film centers on the outsider artist's unusual, at times abusive, but ultimately loving relationship with her employer-turned-husband Everett.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
October 18, 2017
It tells the poignant true story of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, whose famously na´ve, but charming paintings garnered the humble native of Nova Scotia world-wide celebrity.

September 18, 2017
In all of Maud's unfailingly cheerful oeuvre, Walsh found she never painted a self-portrait. Maudie is the result of the director's desire to fill that gap.
