Manchester by the Sea

Cinema

Directed by Kenneth Lonergan | 2016 | USA | 137mins

Casey Affleck has been tipped for an Oscar for his brilliant performance in this powerful family drama.

Casey Affleck stars as Lee, a solitary Boston janitor who after a family tragedy, must return to his North Shore hometown Manchester-by-the-Sea to look after his brother Joe's (Kyle Chandler) son Patrick (Lucas Hedges). There he must deal with caring for his nephew, coming back into contact with his ex-wife Randi (Michelle Williams) and confronting the weight of the past.

As in his previous films, Manchester by the Sea shows Kenneth Lonergan's eye for comedy amidst tragedy, a sprawling interest in an array of supporting characters and, most of al,l an investigation into what constitutes the texture of real life, as well as excellent performances. This is also perhaps his most fully realised film to date, offering us a glimpse into a near complete, emotionally overwhelming world.
