Manchester By The Sea starring Casey Affleck opens later this month

Casey Affleck, Kenneth LonerganLater this month be on the look out for Casey Affleck’s new film  from director Kenneth Lonegran, “Manchester By the Sea”. The movie was one of the biggest breakouts from the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It is expected to score big during the Christmas holidays and just in time for the awards season.

“Manchester By the Sea” is a heartbreaking story about when Lee (Casey Affleck) is made legal guardian of his nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges) after his father Joe (Kyle Chandler) suddenly dies. Set in a Massachusetts’ seaside North Shore town, Lee has to face his community and ex-wife Randi (Michelle Williams). Critics hailed performances from its stars, Affleck and Williams, and both have decent shots at earning an Oscar nomination.

  2. And the kid, Lucas Hedges, is hilarious – I’d give him a best supporting nomination.
