The film follows Lowry in the beginnings of his career, as he yearns for his work to be appreciated in London. However, his disdainful mother, Elizabeth actively tries to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions. Elizabeth never fails to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he is to her.
This preview screening is followed by an exclusive gallery talk from The Lowry Centre in Salford where Timothy Spall will be discussing L.S. Lowry's life and art with gallery curator Claire Stewart.
