STAFF REVIEW:

Manchester by the Sea (2016) is a poignant and deeply affecting drama that explores themes of grief, family, and redemption. Directed by Kenneth Lonergan, the film features a powerful performance by Casey Affleck as Lee Chandler, whose portrayal of a man grappling with profound loss and guilt is both haunting and heart-wrenching. The supporting cast, including Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges, delivers equally compelling performances that add depth to the narrative. The film's setting, with its stark and beautiful New England landscapes, enhances the emotional weight of the story. Manchester by the Sea is a masterclass in storytelling, capturing the complexities of human emotion with sensitivity and authenticity.
