Manchester By the Sea
Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy. Winner of numerous awards including Golden Globes Best Director for Kenneth Lonergan, Critics Choice Best Acting Ensemble, Golden Globe Best Movie, Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for Michelle Williams, and more. A sure-bet contender for several Oscars.
