The Reel Review


This is the life story of Maud Lewis, one of Canada’s most famous folk artists. When the physically disabled Nova Scotian answers an ad to be the live-in housekeeper for a cantankerous fish peddler in his tiny one room house, an unlikely romance develops, and Maudie’s artistic talent begins to flourish.

The poignant character portraits, underscored by incredible, career defining performances by both Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, VERY slowly and subtly builds to one ugly cry tearjerker of a finale, reminding us of the joy of life’s simple pursuits and of being loved.
