Mrs Lowry and Son
Spellbinding exploration of the relationship between the great artist and his mother.
Director: Adrian Noble
Cast includes: Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall
91 Mins / 2019 / UK
This is the beautiful, delicate, intimate and amusing story of the brittle but vital relationship between L. S. Lowry - one of the greatest artists of the 20th century - and his unhappy and controlling mother.
Engrossing and entertaining, Mrs Lowry & Son offers up a veritable masterclass in acting, with Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Spall spellbinding as a mother and son separated by art and ambition.
Lowry, not yet established as an artist, works as a rent collector, walking the streets of Salford, mixing with factory workers and observing the town closely. In the evenings, he takes art classes and paints until the early hours of the morning. He is resolutely loyal and well-mannered towards his bitter mother, Elizabeth, who never misses a chance to tell him what a disappointment he is to her.
This lovely film is punctuated by delightful moments of humour, as it depicts the impact a bitterly obsessive mother had on one of this country's greatest artists.
