    will warm your heart

    What a good film. And most impressive is that it is actually based on a
    true story (sorry, I haven’t done my research before the film, so when
    the documentary bits came at the end, I was like No way, that was
    actually for real!). I am not sure it can really be called a ”feel
    good” movie – life wasn’t that easy for her. But it will certainly warm
    your heart with a big and powerful message that we don’t really need
    much to be happy.

    Sally Hawkins was absolutely great. With that shy but ready smile and
    wondering eyes. Although I felt kind of sorry for the way they
    portrayed her husband. Not sure if he was as brute in real life as they
    made him. Not that I know, of course, but it felt too much (and he
    looked smiley enough in the documentary bits). Also, I’d say the
    editing was not as smooth as it could have been so felt rather
    amateurish overall, but maybe that was intentional.

    Gorgeous, charming Canadiana

    An amazing film that captures a time and a complex relationship

    Although shot in Canada, and although it is about a Canadian, I don’t
    like affixing the term Canadiana to it. It is a Universal movie about
    the indomitable spirit that some people possess even when faced with
    horrendous turns of fate. Sally Hawkins is incredibly good as Maud and
    Ethan Hawke does a superb job of playing Everett Lewis. Hawkins has the
    accents , the movements, the wry smile and the light that just won’t
    stop shining. Hawke’s performance is very nuanced: his character was an
    emotional cripple and he was violent, but we also know how much he
    loved and admired his wife. It was a time when dirt poor men asked for
    nothing, did whatever they must to survive and didn’t allow expression
    of feelings in their lives. Many reviewers have called him ”vile”, but
    he could have been a miner, for example, anywhere in the world as
    easily as a fish seller in Nova Scotia in 1930. I think Ethan Hawke did
    an amazing job of capturing that man. It has great cinematography,
    excellent score and a minimalist script that allows, through actual
    superb acting, to get to know a pair of characters in a movie like
    never before. Don’t miss this one!!
