Synopsis Powerful, emotional filmmaking that leaves a scar, Kenneth Lonergan's MANCHESTER BY THE SEA is heartbreaking yet somehow heartening, a film that just wallops you with its honesty, its authenticity and its access to despair.MANCHESTER BY THE SEA sweats the big stuff and the small stuff, and that’s key to its anomalous power: This is a staggering American drama, almost operatic in the heartbreak it chronicles... -- Grade: A4 stars out of 4 -- It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.There are unexpected moments of humor, redemption, and grace. Lonergan has given us a masterpiece. -- Grade: A[There is] something Shakespearean about the scope of the story, and the universal emotions touched upon.5 stars out of 5 -- It’s a triumph. And Lonergan cements his reputation as one of the most vital voices in US cinema.5 stars out of 5 -- For every moment of heartbreak, every quiet gesture of unspeakable sorrow, there’s a sharply judged laugh or killer put-down. It’s gritty and often devastating, sure, but soulful and surprisingly funny with it.4 stars out of 5 -- Striking a delicate balance between the sharp focus and sprawling scope of his first two films, this heartbreaking third feature finally confirms Lonergan as an auteur of genuine merit rather than just exasperating promise.A wrenching family tragedy is dramatized with the depth of a high-quality American stage piece in MANCHESTER BY THE SEA.A hardened handyman named Lee (Casey Affleck) returns to his hometown in New England after the death of his brother (Kyle Chandler) to care for his 16-year-old nephew (Lucas Hedges), but his arrival also unearths his checkered past. Soon, Lee comes back into contact with his estranged wife (Michelle Williams) as he deals with life in his tight-knit former community. Kenneth Lonergan directed this family drama.
