Critic Reviews for Mrs. Lowry & Son
Both actors give this bed-bound script their all and their jousting is enjoyable if you like other people's pain.
If often sad and unsettling, the film is also livelier and less oppressive than it may sound thanks to the fine writing, deft direction by Adrian Noble, and the superb, if painful interplay between Redgrave and Spall.
A one-note and strangely listless work that brings together two of the most immensely talented actors working today.
Both Spall and Redgrave feel stifled and stiff-jointed, hemmed in by a thin, shallow-focus script that betrays its origins as a radio play all too easily.
Within three or four short exchanges she establishes Mrs Lowry as one of the great maternal monsters of cinema, up there with Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest or Piper Laurie in Carrie.
