Director – Aisling Walsh

Biopic of Maud Lewis, who despite suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, became one of Canada’s most celebrated outsider artists. A profoundly inspiring story of a woman who transcends both her disability and the social mores of her time through her art, as well as a moving exploration of the human heart.

Comments as follows

  • It hit the spot
  • Charming, poignant, sad.  Excellent acting and fabulous cinematography
  • What gives some people the inner strength to find joy in life – no matter what is thrown at them?
  • Brilliant acting, beautiful photography, moving story
  • Really enjoyed this film  made me think of how material the world is and to enjoy and value the simpler things in life
  • Slow but very moving.  The characters were well sketched and the story was very heartwarming
  • A beautiful film.  Great performances from Hawkins and Hawke
  • More like this please.  Lovely film. ‘Shape of Water’ next
  • Like most modern transatlantic films would have benefitted from subtitles – couldn’t follow most of the dialogue
  • Excellent acting though sadly it reminded me of Eddie Redmayne as Steven Hawkins and the transexual.  Thematically like Manchester by the Sea.  Communication and the development of relationships with few words – very moving
  • A gentle romantic view of what was probably a far harsher reality
  • Desperately sad but uplifting.  Great scenery
  • Excellent film.  Lovely cuppa too
  • Charming and artistic – life as art
  • A tender tale where six and eight make one
  • This is one of the best films I have seen in a long time.  Will recommend it to friends and family
  • It made me cry
  • Sensitive and beautiful
  • Remarkable film – will live long in the memory
  • delightful
