Manchester by the Sea is a drama written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan and stars Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler and Lucas Hedges. The plot of the film focuses on Lee Chandler, played by Casey Affleck, who has to look after his sixteen-year-old nephew after the death of his brother while, at the same time, dealing with his tortured past.

My Knowledge and Expectation of Manchester by the Sea

This is a film which has been on my radar for nearly a year. Indeed, it received a lot of praise at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and has been touted as being an Oscar contender for a long time, with Casey Affleck in particular gaining a lot of admiration from critics for his performance. As such, I have been eager to see Manchester by the Sea for quite a while and was certainly expecting that this was going to be a great, powerful film.
