Synopsis:
The film paints the relationship between L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall), one of Britain's most iconic artists, and his mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave), with whom he lived until her death. We see Lowry in the beginnings of his career, as he yearns for his work to be appreciated in London. However, his disdainful mother actively tries to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions. At the same time, the film explores how Elizabeth is the very reason Lowry paints anything at all, as he desperately seeks to create something, anything, which will make her happy.
This powerful yet humorous story imagines the impact this obsessive mother and son relationship had on the great artist.

Narrow Window into the Life of LS Lowry - Mrs. Lowry and Son review by AA

Spoiler Alert
01/02/2020

Interesting film centring of the last years of Mrs Lowry's life and the hold she had over LS until her demise.  Hopefully how he blossomed after her death will be the subject of another film?

Matchstick Men - Mrs. Lowry and Son review by JD

I love the paintings of LSLowery and this movie is very well acted. Timothy Spall is one of your favourite’s.

Sadly the movie only explores the close relationship of mother and son whereas I wold have loved to see how his career developed.

Worth a look.

Spoiler Alert
14/02/2020

found this incredibly slow and monotonous. Though gathered that his Mother was a real bitch, how on other did he live with being under her thumb? It was much too slow for me to enjoy, wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
