Not yet established as an artist, beloved British painter L.S. Lowry works as a rent collector, walking the streets of Salford, mixing with factory workers and observing the town closely. In the evenings, he takes art classes and paints until the early hours of the morning. He lives with his his bitter, overbearing mother, who tries to dissuade him from pursuing his artistic ambitions and never misses a chance to tell him what a disappointment he is to her. A delightfully gentle film, punctuated by delightful moments of humour with poignant performances from its national treasure leads.
