Trivia

The scene where part of a lit match breaks off and hits Lowry (Timothy Spall) on the cheek was an unscripted accident but kept in because of the realism it brought and that it reflected the despondency the character was feeling at that time. See more »

Goofs

L S Lowry is shown as having exhibited Going to Work in 1934. In reality, he didn't paint it until 1943. See more »

Quotes

Elizabeth Lowry: Most people in Pendlebury are bone idle, that's their trouble.
L S Lowry: People can't help being poor. No shame in having nothing, is there?
Elizabeth Lowry: Of course there's shame. We are middle-class, Laurie.
L S Lowry: We lived above our means, mother. Father knew it. He tried to keep you happy.
Elizabeth Lowry: Happy? The day we married it rained. Misfortune poured upon me ever since.

Interesting insight to one of Britain's great artists
2 January 2020 | by paul_mossop-96426See all my reviews

Interesting insight to one of Britain's great artists, and worth the watch to see a master class in acting by Redgrave & Spall. It's not a feel good movie by any means, largely set in Lowry's ailing mothers bedroom. It's clear he loved actually worshiped his mum, and her affect on his life is profound. Even when she finally died. I did enjoy the film, mainly as I said because of the acting and story however be warned it is a biopic, not a feel good movie at all .. enjoy!
