At Pomegranate Theatre
Starts Various times.
An intimate and comical portrayal of one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century, LS Lowry, and his unhappy and controlling relationship with his bedridden mother Elizabeth. Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, while never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her.
The film follows Lowry (Timothy Spall) at the beginning of his career as he yearns to transition into having his work appreciated in London and beyond. We quickly come to learn that it is his disdainful mother (Vanessa Redgrave), not his want of talent, that is the ultimate obstacle to his success. At the same time, director Adrian Noble 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 drama imagines the impact this obsessive mother and son relationship had on the great artist. (91min)
