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.

“a sweet and funny tale about enjoying what you have, not resenting what you don’t“ Sunday Times

“Director Adrian Noble provides a claustrophobic canvas for his stars to bring a testy and tender relationship to full drawn life” Daily Mirror
