After the death of his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler), Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is shocked to learn that Joe has made him sole  guardian of his nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Taking leave of his job, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for Patrick, a spirited 15-year-old, and is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife Randi (Michelle Williams) and the community where he was born and raised. Bonded by the man who held their family together, Lee and Patrick struggle to adjust to a world without him. Written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me), Manchester by the Sea has been nominated for five Golden Globes, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (won by Casey Affleck), and Best Supporting Actress, as well as for Screen Actors Guild awards.  It is likely to repeat these nominations for the Oscars. Ty Burr of the Boston Globe writes that the film “is an experience worth having, not for the magnificence of its impact or the far-flung grandeur of its settings but for the way it illuminates with quiet, unyielding grace how you and I and our neighbors get by, and sometimes how we don’t.”  Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post says that “Manchester by the Sea is a film of surpassing beauty and heart. Even at its most melancholy depths, it brims with candid, earnest, indefatigable life.”
