Movie Reviews

  • with quieter work from Spall and a simplicity of direction that works in its favour, Adrian Noble's film is a sweet and funny tale about enjoying what you have, not resenting what you don't
    3 of 5 by Olly Richards [The Times (UK) ]
  • Vanessa Redgrave steals the show in this movie; Redgrave is on mesmerising form and, at 82, delivers one of the turns of her career
    4 of 5 by Kevin Maher [The Times (UK) ]
  • Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Spall steal the show in this low-key tale of the great artist finding success while caring for his curmudgeonly mother; An entertaining showcase for two first-class performers
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • Martyn Hesford's writing is sharp and insightful when it comes to class and opportunity. But under the direction of theatre veteran Adrian Noble, it's an often stiff and unadventurous affair
    3 of 5 by Clarisse Loughrey [Independent (UK) ]
  • an atmospheric but plodding look at the home life of the renowned Salford painter; It all feels like an uneventful, overly stuffy approach to a painter who was, after all, considered outlandishly strange
    2 of 5 by Alice Saville [Time Out London ]
  • above all else, "Mrs Lowry & Son" is a quality drama – nothing more, nothing less; An acquired taste to some, albeit an ideal example of how keeping it simple can be so rewarding to both the filmmakers and the audience
    4 of 5 by Gloria Daniels-Moss [HeyUGuys ]
  • a solid script is matched by strong performances; Captivating but overly sentimental at times
    3 of 5 by Lydia Figes [Little White Lies ]
  • "Mrs Lowry & Son" features a script by Martyn Hesford that feels more like a radio or stage play; without any fresh insight to invigorate the cliches of downtrodden artistic lives, the characters feel both familiar and stale
    3 of 5 by Eddie Harrison [The List Film (UK) ]
