The latest film by award-winning writer and director Kenneth Lonergan, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, shares the transformative experience of Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck), a solitary Boston janitor, who returns to his hometown to care for Patrick (Lucas Hedges), his teenage nephew after the death of Lee's older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler). A poignant and unexpectedly funny exploration of familial love and sacrifice, MANCHESTER is both Lee's story and the story of the Chandlers, a working-class family living in a Massachusetts fishing village for generations.

Perhaps the most emotionally intelligent film you will see this year.
Kate Muir, Times (UK)
Casey Affleck's visceral performance as the story's lead character, Lee Chandler, is essential to the film's excellence. All the film's key actors deliver matchless performances, but Affleck here has the role of his lifetime.
