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 16-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.

What the critics are saying:
Certified Fresh (96%) on Rotten Tomatoes
Manchester by the Sea delivers affecting drama populated by full-bodied characters, marking another strong step forward for writer-director Kenneth Lonergan.
Detroit News, Adam Graham
It's painful and tragic, yet it's cut with elements of humor and laughter. Just like life.
ReelViews, James Berardinelli
Unforced acting couples with a nuanced, insightful script to tell a story that, although seemingly simple, is achingly complex.
