Film Summary: MAUDIE, based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Oscar® Nominee Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Oscar® Nominee Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. MAUDIE charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
What the critics are saying:
What shines through is the beauty of Guy Godfree’s cinematography – the light has a lovely, soft stillness to it, like a painting – and a remarkable performance by Hawkins, whose impossibly wide smile seems to bring the sun.
– Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
While it’s far from timeless drama, this wistful character study of a lonely woman and a lonely man who find each other in coastal Nova Scotia has a winning, twee charm.
– Colin Covert, Minneapolis Tribune
Hawke is good at playing bad, but Hawkins is better, rendering, in “Maudie,” a portrait of a woman that feels raw, real and revelatory.
– Washington Post
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.
– Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
