Vanessa Redgrave is on mesmerising form!
The relationship between artist LS Lowry and his overbearing mother is examined in this little gem of a film.
The Edinburgh Film Festival closed with the crackling tension and repressed rage of this remarkable two-handler from Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Spall. They play mother and son in a darkly Oedipal drama, mostly set in a terraced house in Pendelbury in 1934, that aims to illuminate the inner life of the artist LS Lowry.
