Manchester By The Sea

Director: Kenneth Lonergan.
Starring: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, Lucas Hedges. USA 2016. 137 mins.


Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Kyle Chandler star in this critically acclaimed drama from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me, Margaret) about a man’s painful home-town return. Casey Affleck gives a career-defining performance as Lee Chandler, a reclusive handyman who returns to his Massachusetts seaside home town after the sudden death of his beloved older brother. Finding he has been appointed legal guardian of his teenage nephew, he is forced to deal with a past that has separated him from his wife (Williams) and the community where he was born and raised.

Manchester By The Sea is heavily tipped for success in the awards season. In only his third feature in 16 years, Lonergan proves himself a master of detail. Heart-wrenching and emotionally powerful, this is brilliant, intense filmmaking of the very highest order.
