Maudie full movie review - "Maudie" An Unusual and Brilliant Love Story
Maud (Sally Hawkins) is different...and she's been treated as someone who is not only different, but not capable.
Having had enough of this, she ventures out on her own and takes a job as a housekeeper for a local fish monger (Ethan Hawke). The two have an unusual relationship, but like knots in a rope, they work themselves out and they find a strong bond. Her artistic skills are allowed to flourish and thanks to the keen eye of a summer resident, her popularity grows.
"Maudie" is one of those films that just makes you feel good throughout its entirety. Even with the harsh realities that seem to be inflicted upon Maud, nothing can quell the light that shines so brightly from within this effervescent woman. She's smart, witty, and talented, all blanketed by her shyness and humble attitude.
This is a beautiful film, from the style to the narrative, creating what we love about going to the movies...it pulls you into the story, allowing you to truly care, connect, and love the characters, and in the end, have knowledge about a remarkable artist.
I haven't been this emotionally connected to and moved by a film since "Philomena." With exceptional performances and a well-told story, this is a film not to be missed.
