MVH – Manchester by the Sea (15) Friday 19th May 2017
Oscar winner Casey Affleck stars in the moving story of how Lee Chandler, a janitor and handyman living in Boston, Massachusetts, has to return to his home town of Manchester by the Sea in order to care for his nephew, Patrick, after the teenager's father dies. Unaware that he has been named guardian, Lee struggles with his new role.
Throughout the film Lee recounts the events that caused him to leave Manchester and distance himself from the past. Gradually Patrick and Lee re-establish their bonds although there are still clashes between them over certain decisions including their future living arrangements.
The poignant narrative also won the Best Original Screenplay Award for writer and director Kenneth Lonergan.
Stars: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler and Lucas Hedges.
