Manchester by the Sea (15)
Dir: Kenneth Lonergan | USA | 2016 | 135 mins
Fans of writer-director Kenneth Lonergan's perfectly pitched dramas You Can Count on Me (2000) and Margaret (2011) will be thrilled by the shattering, superlative Manchester by the Sea.
Casey Affleck is Lee, a Boston janitor who after a family tragedy, returns to his North Shore hometown to visit his nephew. There, he takes on new responsibilities, sees his ex-wife Randi (Michelle Williams) again, and confronts the weight of the past. Evincing an eye for comedy against tragedy and a sprawling, yet specific interest in the texture of real life, this is Lonergan’s most fully realised film to date, offering us a near complete, emotionally overwhelming world.
