Kenneth Lonergan’s haunting family drama is a true portrait of grief set against the ethereal backdrop of the Massachusetts winter.

After the death of his older brother Joe, Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is shocked that Joe has made him sole guardian of his teenage nephew Patrick. Taking leave of his job as a janitor in Boston, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea, the fishing village where his working-class family has lived for generations. There, he is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife, Randi (Michelle Williams), and the community where he was born and raised.

Nominated for Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards with compelling performances from Affleck and Williams.
