This is a small gem of a movie--beautifully acted, artistically shot. The life of a little-known Canadian artist, told with clarity and heart.
Definitely a "must see". Wonderful acting, gorgeous scenery, and a beautiful story.
Must see. Snarky, sad, right to the soul of two people. You cannot miss this one.
One of the best movies I have seen in 2017
This is a great movie. Terrific acting and a very moving story. It is not a movie for kids however.
Slow but wonderful. Great acting but sad story.
marvelous movie....wonderful acting. Superb in every way.
The beginning was so sad and pathetic that we walked out. She is however a good actress. I wasn't in the mood to wait till the end to feel less depressed.
Muy muy buena!!
So incredibly moving.. there are times the movie seems to be moving too slow.. it was then I realized that that's exactly how it was supposed to be. I highly recommend seeing Maudie.
Her acting was brilliant. The movie seemed to drag on forever.
Boring and pretentious a dull and trivializing look at an abusive relationship ...nice scenery
Truly compelling story. Best movie I have seen in years. A must see.
Very touching. Sally Hawkins is phenomenal and Ethan Hawke gives a good solid performance.
Amazing beautiful film. Simple, wonderful acting and shots, and so touching and delicate
This movie is Oscar worthy. As is Sally's and Ethan's performances.
I was completely engrossed in this wonderful movie of hardship, love and devotion, where the brightly coloured artwork lightened the soul and spirit amid such desperate times. I loved this movie and both actors deserve Oscars for their outstanding performance. I felt I was living in their tiny house with this remarkable couple. Outstanding....I will definitely watch it again.
Excellent movie, excellent acting. A must see, 5 stars!
went to see this movie. I laughed and cried. loved it.
This isn't a Hollywood blockbuster. It won't entertain you with flash and dazzling special effects. It will however tell a love story that is at times very sad, but very real. This movie will make you feel and hopefully make you appreciate life as much as Maud Lewis did.
Loved every minute of it. We were at the museum in Nova Scotia and saw the real home on display - you would wonder how anyone could haved lived in such small quarters. They should both win an academy award for their performances.
Awesome, wonderful, overwhelming ! Very touching and evoking reality of those times. These 2 actors deserve awards.
Wonderful movie! I will definitely go to see it again. The acting was superb, the absolute best from Sally and Ethan, who invited you into the world of Maude and Everett so flawlessly. Oscar winning movie for sure!
up there with the best. Great movie and acting
Wow! Brilliant! Oscar worthy on so many levels! Sally and Ethan held me in their 'relationship' dialogue from the very beginning when their first words were exchanged. A movie to see again and again simply for the experience :)
Loved it! Awesome movie and should not be missed!
Evokes all emotions. Incredible academy award style acting!! Three of us just saw this wonderful movie and recommend as a must see!!??
Excellent. Just a real gem of a movie. Never thought Ethan could pull off an acting role such as this one, but he did, and in glorious fashion. Don't miss seeing this movie.
What a truly heartwarming love story. Sally and Ethan were dynamite in their respective roles - definitely Oscar worthy all around!! The cinematography is spectacular and you will leave the theatre wanting to travel the east coast!
Best movie I have seen in years! Riveting performances by Hawkins and Hawke.. a well told yarn of two simple people turned into a masterpiece of entertainment!
It's up there with the best. Fantastic movie
MY WIFE AND I LOVED THE MOVIE. DON'T MISS THIS ONE, IT IS A TRUE TREASURE. GREAT ROLES BY BOTH. FUNNY IN PARTS, SAD IN OTHERS AND UPLIFTING AT THE RIGHT MOMENT. ONE GUY IN THE AUDIENCE SAID HE HAD SEEN IT SIX TIMES !!! ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW.
Best Canadian movie I've seen. If we could make more Canadian movies like this one I would go to the movies more often. Sally and Ethan were fantastic. Both should get an academy award.
Outstanding! This film has left us so moved that we have now spent hours further investigating the real-life people. Amazing acting by Hawkins and Hawke...they had us truly believing they were Maud & Everette!
Simply the best Canadian true story made for big screen in a long, long time!!!
Touched my inner core. The silence in the theatre at times was a strong display at how drawn in we were. Not so Hollywood but rather a taste of how realistic a big screen "mainstream" movie can get. Love, art, simple life, humanity, based on a true story, loved this movie- did more for me than Lala Land, Lion ... this should truly be nominated for Oscar material!
Deeply moving meditation on art and love on the fringes. Slow going for a while, but stick with it. All pays off in the second act. Brilliant. Don't miss it.
Loved it, hard to imagine someone going through everything she did and still had a sweet sense of humor. The best movie I have seen in a very long time.
One of the best movies I've seen in years; wonderful actors
This is a beautifully crafted and intelligent movie. Sally Hawkins enthralls us with her portrayal of Maud Lewis. Ethan Hawke is outstanding in his portrayal of the awkward and reticent Everett. This is a not to be missed movie.
fabulous movie. best movie I have seen in years. very few movies have "touched" me the way this one has. Masterful!
Excellent movie! Moving and inspiring.
A beautiful film that celebrates Maud Lewis' creative spirit. She found joy in her painting, despite the harsh conditions she endured. 'Maudie' captures the essence of rural Nova Scotia in that era. I highly recommend it to anyone who admires her paintings or who likes a good Canadian film.
Incredible performance by Sally Hawkins! Creatively filmed with an intriguing soundtrack. I had to go back a second time, and perhaps a third.
Beautiful movie - very well acted by the two leads, beautiful/stark Newfoundland landscape (standing in for Nova Scotia), and a well done screenplay about an amazing artist. Highly recommended!
Fantastic...Sally Hawkins & Ethan Hawke give truly nuanced, subtle, inspirational performances. Beautifully directed and filmed. This is truly one for the ages.
Truly inspirational story. A treasure. Spectacular scenery. Art and a great soundtrack. Every Canadian should see this movie...Maud Lewis is amazing. Tragedy but so much dry humor.
