3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Hawkins? performance is spectacular, and moving throughout....This is a remarkably assured movie, through and through."
"Sally Hawkins turns a crumpled misfit into an affecting figure of fortitude and optimism in MAUDIE..."
"[S]tick with the movie for its leads, Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, a beautifully matched pair who open up two closed people, unleashing torrents of feeling."
"MAUDIE's biggest success is Walsh?s interest in depicting the environment from which art springs, rather than laying out some simple emotional cause for its generation."
4 stars out of 5 -- "Shot in Newfoundland and Labrador, the achingly beautiful locations give striking context for a story that begins, at least, suffused in sadness."
3 stars out of 5 -- "Hawkins?s performance is impressive. It?s a physical transformation on a par with Marion Cotillard?s Edith Piaf in LA VIE EN ROSE."
