Manchester By The Sea

An emotionally charged drama about family and forgiveness, Manchester By The Sea, starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams, has already won Affleck his first Golden Globe for Best Actor in a drama motion picture and is hotly tipped to pick up a host of awards in 2017!

The new film from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan, stars Affleck as Lee Chandler, 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, as his brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew (the often hilarious, Lucas Hedges).

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.

Rocked by contact with his estranged ex-wife (played by Michelle Williams), Lee is forced to face up to painful memories and new-found levels of responsibility as he reconnects with his family.

Make sure to take tissues - despite the black humour, this incredibly powerful and hugely acclaimed drama had the entire audience weeping at one crucial point!
