A poignant, unexpectedly funny exploration of the power of familial love, community, sacrifice and hope written and directed by award-winning writer & director Kenneth Lonergan.

The Chandlers are a working-class family who’ve lived in a Massachusetts fishing village for generations. When older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) dies, Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is shocked to learn that Joe has made him sole guardian of his nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Taking leave of his job, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for Patrick, a spirited 16-year-old, and 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. Lonergan seamlessly weaves past and present, crafting a tension-filled tale that features penetrating emotional insight and deeply affecting human relationships.The film stars Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, Lucas Hedges, Gretchen Mol, and C.J. Wilson
