Storyline Heading
An uncle is forced to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy's father dies.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a slow, talky drama aimed at adult moviegoers. The downbeat tone and leisurely pace will most appeal to those with a taste for independent, artier fare. This is a major starring vehicle for Casey Affleck, and despite her award nominations, Michelle Williams only has very little screen time. Language, sexuality involving teens, and dark subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Manchester by the Sea is the kind of movie we only get during Awards Season because its appeal is limited. It doesn't offer quick, disposable moments of glee or adrenaline or triumph. It's not cinematic fast food. If you want superficial entertainment, Manchester by the Sea will disappoint. This is for those who crave a deeper experience.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent "Manchester by the Sea" does sometimes dive into pits of despair, most of the time it's a dry comedy. ...the funniest movie about grief ever made. But that's far from the only remarkable thing about it. It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent What makes Manchester by the Sea one of the year's best movies is how naturally Lonergan brings the audience into the family: You feel all their pain and sorrow, find a way to get past the grief, and embrace the deep hugs and laughs that come as a needed release.

NY Post Full Review
Excellent Its feet planted in a peculiar place, its sensibility in harmony with that of a man who rejects any attempt at healing or even self-examination, "Manchester by the Sea” is precise in its vision, universal in its application. It's one of this year's few great films.
