Mrs. Lowry & Son (PG)
Directed By Adrian Noble
Starring Timothy Spall & Vanessa Redgrave
Mrs. Lowry & Son paints the relationship between L.S. Lowry and his mother Elizabeth, with whom he lived until her death. We watch Lowry in the beginnings of his career, as he yearns for his work to be appreciated in London. However, his disdainful mother actively tries to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions. At the same time, the film explores how Elizabeth is the very reason he paints anything at all, as he desperately seeks to create something that will make her happy.
This powerful yet humorous story imagines the impact this obsessive Mother and Son relationship had on the great artist.
