Mrs Lowry & Son
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.
Directed by Adrian Noble, the former director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mrs Lowry & Son is a beautiful and intimate tale, with mesmerising performances from Redgrave and Spall.
