Following the film’s European Premiere at the London Film Festival over the weekend, a brand new clip from the critically acclaimed Manchester By The Sea. In this emotionally, intense clip Lee (Affleck) struggles to come to terms with his newly found responsibility, check it out…
In Manchester By The Sea ,Casey Affleck stars as Lee, a man whose spare existence is suddenly ruptured when the death of his brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) forces him to return to the hometown he abandoned years before. Rocked by contact with his estranged ex-wife (Michelle Williams) and the revelation that Joe has made him guardian of his teenage son (Lucas Hedges), Lee is forced to face up to painful memories and new-found levels of responsibility as he reconnects with his family.
The festival reviews are coming in thick and fast for Kenneth Lonergan (Margaret) film and after this week’s London Film Festival screenings, the overall consensus is we have a fantastic movie on our hands. This won’t be a movie that will appeal to every cinephile, more for those who like something intelligent, thoughtful well acted. It looks like this will play on your inner soul, play on your heart strings, a movie that tests actors dramatic chops. It maybe nearly 3 hours long, it’s a movie that’s scooping up potential Oscar buzz and a highly underrated director, fantastic performances it sounds like this movie deserves those plaudits.
Co-starring Gretchen Mol, Tate Donovan, Kara Hayward and Erica McDermott, Manchester By The Sea will be in the UK &Irish cinemas from 13th January 2017 (USA 18th November)
