Manchester by the Sea (2016)

US 137m, Colour
Director: Kenneth Lonergan; Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol, Lucas Hedges

manchester-by-the-seaManchester by the Sea is a dark nonlinear New England drama about a distraught and guilt ridden father who becomes the guardian of his dead brother’s teenaged son. Skillfully employing elements of black humor, Lonergan is somehow able to lighten the pervasive tragedy which permeates the soul of Affleck’s tortured character. This is a thoughtful film that critics will celebrate, and many will appreciate, but one which most audiences will only want to see once (Klaus Ming February 2017).
