Trivia

That is the real Lowry house seen in the film from the outside. The exteriors were filmed on location in greater Manchester. The only studio shots were the scenes set inside the house. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the film it is stated that Lowry refused both an OBE and a Knighthood in 1968. This isn't quite true. He turned down an OBE in 1955, a CBE in 1961, a Knighthood in 1968, and a CH (Companion of Honour) in 1972 and 1976. He is believed to have turned down more honours than anyone else. See more »

A good film but an acting masterclass by Timothy Spall is worth the ticket price alone
3 September 2019 | by coombsstephenSee all my reviews

This is a simple and quite short film that brings to life one of Britain's most beloved artists and the life that he endured waiting hand and foot on his elderly mother.

Although the film is quite basic the acting of Timothy Spall and, to a degree, Vanessa Redgrave makes the film great. Spall now seems to be able to morph into any different British character, whether real or fiction, and completely make them his own. He must be one of the most understated great actors of our time.

I would like to have seen more of how Lowry came to paint such classics but the film does have a good angle and is really enjoyable.
