Mrs Lowry and Son
With Timothy Spall, Vanessa Redgrave & Stephen Lord. Running time 91 minutes + trailers.
Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave give masterclass performances in theatre director Adrian Noble’s intimate, moving and amusing study of the brittle but vital relationship between L. S. Lowry, one of the greatest and most curious British painters of the 20th century, and his controlling mother. At the start of his artistic career, painting alongside his day job as a rent collector, Lowry yearns for his brilliantly original works to be appreciated in London and beyond – but his difficult, disdainful mother stands in the way of his ambitions. This powerful, richly observed drama explores the impact of an obsessive relationship and its impact on the famously sensitive Lowry’s art.
