Mrs Lowry and Son - Oscar worthy performances
6 September 2019 | by brankovranjkovicSee all my reviews

Biopic drama, stars Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Spall, both members of British acting royalty.

The film depicts the life and times of a much loved British artist and the inspiration behind his iconic paintings, a character study that explores the complicated relationship between the artist and his overbearing, bedridden, depressive mother.

Though this is a simple plot, you can really feel the pain that Lowry suffered while caring for his mother, who discourages his efforts, and never acknowledges his gift for portraying painting of the industrial north of England.
