Director: Kenneth Lonergan ● Starring: Casey Affleck, Michele Williams, Kyle Chandler and Lucas Hedges.
Lee (Affleck) is a brooding, taciturn loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. The death of his beloved older brother saddles him with the unexpected responsibility of raising his nephew Patrick.
Taking leave of his job, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for Patrick, forcing him to confront an unspeakable (and unspoken) past tragedy which caused him to separate from the local community and his wife (Williams).
The third feature by You Can Count On Me director Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea boasts masterly performances from Affleck and Williams.
With two showings at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
