Maudie review – Sally Hawkins is extraordinary as Maud Lewis

6 August 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hawkins impresses as the Canadian outsider artist, but this true story jars when abuse is treated as romance

At first glance it’s a charming, feelgood story. This Etsy-cutesy drama based on the life of the Canadian outsider artist Maud Lewis (1903-70) tells the tale of a woman betrayed by her family, all but written off by society, who found solace in a can of paint. Maud (Sally Hawkins in a tremulous performance), channelled her compulsion to create into a cottage industry, selling her appealingly naive postcards and decorated boards to day-tripping city sophisticates. She was celebrated in the press. President Nixon owned a piece of her work.

But central to her life, and to this film by Aisling Walsh (Song for a Raggy Boy), is Maud’s relationship with her husband, itinerant fish pedlar Everett Lewis (a guttural, somewhat moth-eaten Ethan Hawke). And this is where Maudie wanders into more questionable territory. »

This film is easily her biggest and most ambitious yet. Written by Sherry White, Maudie is based on the true story of Maud Dowley (Sally Hawkins), a Nova Scotia resident who suffered from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. We’re introduced to her at a time in her life when her mother and father have passed away and the family home has been passed on to her brother, which was common practise at the time. Her brother, Charles (here played by Zachary Bennett) has made »
