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.
“Two titans at the top of their game…exquisite performances” – Readers Digest
“With quieter work from Spall and a simplicity of direction that works in its favour, Adrian Noble’s film is a sweet and funny tale about enjoying what you have, not resenting what you don’t.” – Sunday Times (UK)
“An entertaining showcase for two first-class performers.” – Guardian
