Since The Sundance Film Festival , Manchester by the sea has been one of my big expectations of this year. Bought by Amazon Studios this piece is brilliant in every way.
Original material from Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the sea thrives with its amazing performance from Casey Affleck and its perfectly written scenario. The simplicity, the rythme is as bold and heartbreaking.
Synopsis: An uncle is forced to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy’s father dies.
Casey Affleck is going to blow you away by his simple, shy, suffocating performance, anger, sadness. Already a huge actor since The Killer inside me, Gone Baby Gone, Manchester by the sea is going to finally show the world how great he is. Kyle Chandler and Michelle Williams both challenge very well Casey Affleck, bringing the emotions to a upper level.
Kenneth Lonergan knows how to create brilliant films and this film may be his best movie ever. The powerful music and the brilliant writing make Manchester by the sea one of the best movie to watch this year.
