Trivia

That is the real Lowry house seen in the film from the outside. The exteriors were filmed on location in greater Manchester. The only studio shots were the scenes set inside the house. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the film it is stated that Lowry refused both an OBE and a Knighthood in 1968. This isn't quite true. He turned down an OBE in 1955, a CBE in 1961, a Knighthood in 1968, and a CH (Companion of Honour) in 1972 and 1976. He is believed to have turned down more honours than anyone else. See more »

Slow and meandering, but ok
30 August 2019 | by william-204-827779See all my reviews

If you go to see this... see it for the performances, and know it's one of those films which will stick with you more than when you viewed it itself- if that makes sense. It's a worthy film alone if you're also an art fan. The film mostly takes place in one room and with that most of its merit I feel is born.

See Spall in his better artist film 'Mr. Turner', however if you must see more- this is a nice companion piece of sorts.

7/10. (Maybe 7.5 ;)
