Mrs Lowry and Son PG

Mon 11 – Thu 14 Nov


★★★★ – “Redgrave is on mesmerising form and, at 82, delivers one of the turns of her career” – The Times


The feature-film debut from acclaimed theatre director Adrian Noble, Mrs Lowry and Son depicts the turbulent relationship between L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall), one of the 20th century’s most iconic painters, and his domineering mother (Vanessa Redgrave).


Lowry, not yet established as an artist, is working as a rent collector, but is obsessed by painting and dedicates all of his free time to it. The other great devotion in Lowry’s life is to his mother- she, however, only finds disappointment in her son and his work.


Delicately balancing tension and apprehension with vulnerability and humour, Mrs Lowry and Son is a dramatic and moving story with a ferocious performance from Vanessa Redgrave at its centre.


Dir: Adrian Noble
