Mrs Lowry and Son (PG) at Ely Cinema
Back by popular demand! A portrait of the artist L.S. Lowry and the relationship with his mother, who tries to dissuade him from pursuing his passion.
The film follows painter LS Lowry’s early career, as he yearns for his work to be appreciated in London. However, his mother actively tries to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions. This powerful, yet humorous story imagines the impact this obsessive mother and son relationship had on the great artist. Terrific performances from Spall and Redgrave. Mild bad language.
Director: Adrian Noble.
Stars: Timothy Spall, Vanessa Redgrave.
