Stunning acting. Interesting movie.

This movie is a Maud-lin abomination. The hack director (Aisling Walsh) plays fast and loose with the actual events in order to maximize the bathos.
I must say, the choice of Linklater lunkhead (Ethan Hawke) was true to form - wooden acting to the nth degree. There are bad actors in Canada - couldn't another be just as cruddy?
The no shame award goes to Michael Timmins for the irritating tinkly-poo soundtrack. Cowboy Junkies were a mildly interesting band in the 80's. It appears as if they are on mighty hard times as no one with any self worth would commit to this concoction.

Sally Hawkins is amazing actor. The sets are perfect, the supporting actors are great. Take the time to watch this film, it is worth it.

Sally Hawkins once again proves why she is the best actress in the industry right now. Brilliant performance.... moving, heartfelt, optimistic, incredibly sad, and beautiful. What a great story about a person many of us have not heard much about. Well deserved film, I wish more people saw it! Highly recommend

Brilliant little movie. No wonder this film cleaned up at the Canadian Film awards. It's too bad films about Canadians can't be acted by them. Again we see leads from other countries (in this case England and the US as well as an Irish director), however a great film is exactly that regardless. It's refreshing to see something approximating real life produced by the film industry these days. For viewers who enjoy sex, violence, super-hero action etc etc take a pass on Maudie!

Sally Hawkins does an amazing job of bringing the fascinating story of Canadian artist Maud Lewis to life. The movie inspired me to find out more about Lewis and her life in Nova Scotia. I am planning to read The Heart on the Door : A Biography of Maud and Everett Lewis and Digby County, Nova Scotia.

Really worth watching!

Very loosely, based on the real
Maud Lewis.
She was a great Canadian Folk artist.
She was the ultimate optimist .
An angel, on earth.
Sally Hawkins acting was incredible.
Ethan Hawke's best performance, ever.

"Maudie" your a prize winner!! Few movies have moved me like this film shot on location in Newfoundland! The attention to small details is amazing. I won't ruin any part of the film by telling you more. I have seen many movies over the years. Few have left such a lasting impression as "Maudie"!
P.S. Thanks to the 301 KCLS patrons who currently have holds on a copy of "Maude"! It does my heart good to see the demand for something I hold so dear to me!

Quiet, subtle, sometimes dismal, it is ultimately a love story. No action, little tension, very slow moving, but very, very sweet. It was a good movie.
