Manchester By The Sea – Dir Ken Lonegran

Cast – Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Kyle Chandler,Lucas Hedges, Gretchen Mol, Michelle Williams

A story of a tragic broken family, beautifully written and carefully directed by Ken Lonegran. What I love about this film is that it is subtle, real and full of emotion, no talky screenplay with overly descriptive dialogue that leads to maudlin scenes. Less is much more. This film confirms what most of us already believed and that is that Casey Affleck is an amazing actor, delivering a performance of a lifetime. Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges are also magnificent in this heartbreaking story.  This film will stay with you for a very long time.
