        A simple and affecting biopic that could have been easily made forgettable but instead benefits immensely from Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke's fantastic performances - especially the former, who offers us a character that brings us to tears with her sensibility and sweetness.

        Finally, the biopic of obscure Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis that we've all been clamoring for has arrived. What's that? You've never heard of her much less even care why there's a movie about her? Obviously, since Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film The Shape of Water is going to secure Sally Hawkins with a best actress Oscar nomination, there has to be a primer film where she also plays a small disabled woman with a romantic attraction to fish so that when she wins people like me can say, "I knew she would. She was great in The Shape of Water, but she was also in a little indie film earlier this year called Maudie, and it was just lovely." Well, I'm gonna get ahead of myself and say it: Maudie is just lovely - a quiet little film to cuddle with your cat to. The performances from Hawkins and Ethan Hawke are interesting, although I had a hard time imagining Hawke's real life fishmongering counterpart being such an abusive sperg to an arthritic little lady who just likes to paint flowers and other rustic miscellany. And Hawkins is as adorable as a puppy who got booped on the nose. At its heart, the film is a meditation on finding joy in the coldest of corners and an escape from the mundane through expressivity. Set in a beautifully bleak Nova Scotia, Maudie proves that creativity trumps small town mindedness every day. The storekeeper in the film sneers "My five year old could do better [paintings]." Well, mister, your five year old probably isn't the subject of a limited release biopic, is he?

        Sally Hawkins and Ethan hawke do very well here as marginalized fringe personalities, given the short shrift so often in life and society that they fully expect it as the natural course and are little surprised in their positions, who discover an uneasy grace with one another. How they navigate their lives and emotions I found to be satisfying moviemaking.

        Fantastic acting by Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke (wasn't John Hawkes available) in a story that proves love can be expressed in so many different forms. Beautifully shot capturing the isolation and simplicity of that place and time . Hawkins might be the female Daniel Day Lewis of our times. (7-22-17)
