Duration: 1 hr 32mins
Boasting powerhouse performances from Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave, this is the delicate, intimate and amusing story of the relationship between beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Spall) and his overbearing mother Elizabeth (Redgrave) in 1920s Salford. 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. Exclusive content from the Lowry exhibition at the Lowry Centre at Salford Quays where Timothy Spall will be discussing L.S. Lowry’s art and life with gallery curator Claire Stewart, will be screened after the film.
