Mrs Lowry and Son (PG)
Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave star in this touching biopic.
Beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her.
The film is the big screen debut of acclaimed theatre director Adrian Noble, who led the Royal Shakespeare Company for more than a decade.
