Absolutely wonderful movie with a stellar performance given by Sally Hawkins. 5 big stars and a must see.

I came at this with low expectations. Was I ever wrong. What a delightful little film! One of the best I’ve seen in years. Refreshing.

The ensemble of deleted scenes, fortunately provided by the producers of Maudie, is indispensable for illuminating the framing of the film. We must find ourselves in life, otherwise we let it fruitlessly slip away. No dress rehearsal or opportunity proffered for a redo. This motion picture evokes a poignancy in regard to the bits and pieces of daily accommodation, compromise, and discovery we make from which our experiences derive, perpetually molding a resiliency manifested by few today. The aesthetic portrayal of seasons continually passing, evinced cyclically by the landscape in flux, historically by the contents of one's surroundings, serves to remind, in a fine-drawn fashion, how fleeting time is. Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke are superbly cast to tell the tale, creating spellbinding, indelible portrayals of Maud and Everett Lewis. Unequivocally, a tour de force.

Highly recommended! A wonderful movie based on a true story. A love story, but not. What an amazing spirit Maude had, to survive as she did and create those joyful images in spite of it! I don't want to give away more than that, but suffice to say there is a lot more going on in this movie than you would think. Magnificent acting by the 2 leads (both should AT LEAST get Oscar nods). Very well told which is probably attributable to the director. Watch the deleted scenes (and the extras for a glimpse of the real people on whom it's based). One of the best films of the year.

They should just give Sally Hawkins the Best Actress award now. Her performance is phenomenal. Ethan Hawke counters her performance with equal skill. This film has it all; depth, interesting story well written, excellent photography, a sound track that perfectly matches the film and a great charm.
