Mrs Lowry & Son (PG)
Director Adrian Noble, UK, 2019, 1hr 31mins
Timothy Spall, Vanessa Redgrave
A portrait of the artist L S Lowry and the relationship with his overbearing mother – with whom he lived all his life – and who tried to dissuade him from pursuing his passion. Within a few exchanges Redgrave establishes Mrs Lowry as ‘one of the great maternal monsters of cinema’ The Times.
