When we first meet Casey Affleck’s Lee Chandler, he is a bitter and angry loner working as a janitor in Boston. However, when he receives tragic news he must return to his hometown and face up to the darkness in his past. An astonishingly-realised character study, Manchester by the Sea finds celebrated director Kenneth Lonergan (Margaret) deftly balancing utter tragedy with surprising moments of humour, and features a career-defining performance from Affleck. Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.
