Good if you want to watch a movie about death, depression and sadness. I like to come away from a movie feel up, this wole was morbid beyond sad even though the two main characters did a good job action

"Manchester By the Sea," is a movie that reminded us of what is made of an place where tragedy happens to somebody once too often. The character played by Casey Affleck is a type of tragic character that William Shakespeare will love to create. He plays a man name Lee Chambers who, as the film opens in Boston, is a janitor who mouths off at residents. When he's not doing that, he gets in fights at bars. he gets a call that his uncle has died and must take care of his son who has the same temperament as him. So at least the two has something in common. He is [played by Lucus Hedges who looks like a younger version of Matt Damon. Damon is also one of the producer of the movie. The film is directed by Kenneth Lonergan who directed the 2000 movie "You Can Count on Me," has made a wonderful movie. The cast is incredible including Michelle Williams in a emotional supporting performance. I like the cinematography, the film editing, making it a beautiful done movie.Casey Affleck could get some Oscar buzz. what's more, his performance could escape from under the shadow of his brother Ben.

Sad movies are movies too. While Manchester by the Sea may not tell a heart-warming tale, it is a brilliant and emotional character study. Director Kenneth Lonergan puts out one of the best films of the year. The film beautifully explores emotional themes about family, personal history, youth, and relationships with those in your life. Lee Chandler (played by Casey Affleck) delivers one of the most raw, emotion-packed performances of the year. Instead of being strictly "plot-driven," Manchester by the Sea instead is an experiential film, giving the audience a glimpse into the life of somebody like Chandler who has lived through horrors.
