Plus short Plastics: Cleaning Up Our Act
A remarkable two-hander with plenty of crackling tension between two giants of British cinema. Trapped in a small house and a claustrophobic relationship with his bed-ridden mother (Vanessa Redgrave, in ‘one of the turns of her career’ The Times), dutiful son LS Lowry (Timothy Spall) stands on the brink of success as a letter arrives from London offering him an exhibition of his ‘matchstick men’ paintings. Will his love for his bitter, disapproving mother prevent the flowering of his artistic passion?
UK 2019 – directed by Adrian Noble with Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall, Stephen Lord – 93 mins
Redgrave is on mesmerising form – THE TIMES
