Mrs. Lowry & Son Reviews

November 27, 2019
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.

It cushions itself with needless amounts of nagging music, and winds up giving us a dainty little tour of the Lowry museum in Salford, where we can presumably expect the DVD to be sold until kingdom come.

Noble delivers what is really theatre on screen, clingfilmed sandwiches rustling from the stalls. But Spall and Redgrave excel and the art endures.

It all feels like an uneventful, overly stuffy approach to a painter who was, after all, considered outlandishly strange.
