The continuing story of the Crawley family, wealthy owners of a large estate in the English countryside in the early 20th century.

The film begins in 1927 by following the journey of a letter from Buckingham Palace to Downton Abbey. The letter announces that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to Downton as part of a royal tour through the country.

Excitement is high at Downton Abbey when the Crawley family learns that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit. But trouble soon arises when Mrs. Patmore, Daisy and the rest of the servants learn that the king and queen travel with their own chefs and attendants -- setting the stage for an impromptu scheme and other shenanigans.

A portrait of the artist L.S. Lowry and the relationship with his mother, who tries to dissuade him from pursuing his passion.

Mrs Lowry & Son is a biographical drama film set in Pendlebury Greater Manchester, chronicling the life of the renowned artist L. S. Lowry.

Beloved British artist L. S. Lowry lived with his overbearing mother, Elizabeth, until her death in 1939. Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tries to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at her disappointment in him.

It was directed by Adrian Noble from a screenplay written by Martyn Hesford who also wrote the original play, and considers the relationship between Lowry and his mother Elizabeth, who has reservations over her son's career in painting.  It stars Timothy Spall in the title role with Vanessa Redgrave, Stephen Lord, David Schaal and Wendy Morgan in supporting roles.
