This was an interesting insight into the relationship between L.S.Lowry and his Mother with good performances from Lynda Baron and Reece Dinsdale.

As this was a drama I would like to think Mrs Lowry never actually uttered the words "Your best isn't good enough" to her son...Sad


Artist L. S. Lowry lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth. Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he is to her. This powerful drama imagines the impact this obsessive mother and son relationship had on the great artist.
