Mrs Lowry and Son (PG) Cuppa Screening

Monday, 23 Sep at 11:00 AM
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.
Spall and Redgrave are British acting royalty and it is a bitter-sweet treat to see them in this two-hander, beautifully conjuring up the painfully class-conscious mother and her loyal, well-mannered son.  A wonderfully observed, desperately sad film, but one that is punctuated with moments of tenderness and humour that leaves you overwhelmed by the profound legacy  of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century.

Dir. Adrian Noble / UK / 2019 / 1hr 31min
