Casey Affleck gives a towering performance in this heart-wrenching drama of loss and redemption. Rude, withdrawn and quick to anger, Boston handyman Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is clearly a troubled man. When he receives news of the sudden death of his beloved brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) from heart failure, Lee sets off alone for his Massachusetts home town of Manchester-by-the Sea. Here he learns that he has become guardian of his 16-year-old nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges). But returning home also means confronting his troubled past and the tragic events that forced him to leave, separating him from his wife, Randi (Michelle Williams).Exceptionally skilful writer/director Kenneth Lonergan succeeds superbly in drawing us into these brilliantly sketched lives, withholding key information for maximum emotional effect. He's magnificently served by an outstanding cast and gets a career-best performance from Casey Affleck. Little wonder this soulful, intimate and deeply moving film has received universal critical acclaim.
