Ahead of the release of the critically acclaimed Manchester by the Sea next month, two new clips starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams have been made available today by Studiocanal. We caught the film at the BFI London Film Festival earlier this year, and believe us when we say it’s worthy of the hype. A truly remarkable character drama.
Directed by Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me, Margaret), the Academy Award-contender will be released in UK cinemas in January and has recently been named as the 2016 Best Film of the Year by the National Board of Review. Check out the two brand-new video clips below…
In the critically acclaimed feature film from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me, Margaret), Casey Affleck stars as Lee, a man whose sparse 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 brilliant Manchester by the Sea opens nationwide on Friday, 13th January 2017.
