Mrs Lowry & SonPG

Beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). 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 was to her. By turns hilarious, brutal and tender, and featuring yet another tremendous performance from Timothy Spall, this has an appealing old-school charm. Often sad and unsettling, this is also livelier and less oppressive than it may sound thanks to the fine writing, deft direction, and the superb, if painful interplay between Redgrave and Spall. “An entertaining showcase for two first-class performers.” Guardia

Pain & Glory15

Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar’s (All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Volver, Julieta) 21st feature film Pain and Glory stars Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz. A nostalgic, semi-autobiographical tale, it follows Salvador Mallo (Banderas), a film director in decline as he explores a series of experiences and encounters from his past. Facing his mortality, he recalls his childhood in ‘60s Valencia, his first love affair in ‘80s Madrid, the pain of heartbreak and his fateful early discovery of cinema. A typically witty, sensuous, evocative and intelligent film, it is intensely personal and seems to show its writer-director coming to terms with the scale and depth of his body of work. Beautifully produced, it is rich with subtle pleasures, not least its stellar wider cast including Asier Etxeandia, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Nora Navas and Julieta Serrano alongside Banderas and Cruz.
