This moving bio-drama, adapted from the play by Martyn Hesford, tells the story of the difficult relationship between artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) and his overbearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave).

Salford, 1934. While making his living as a rent collector, Laurence Stephen Lowry is almost obsessively moved to record his environment in paint whenever he can. He has always shared his mother’s house, but with advancing age and failing health, she has become hard to live with. Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth resents his ‘hobby’, never failing to tell him what a disappointment he is to her…

“... a bracing testament to the power of performance.” The Times
