Our September main film will be Manchester by the Sea...
The winner of two oscars, this is thew story of Lee Chandler, a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.
'That Manchester By The Sea is so absorbing is down to Lonergan's painstaking directorial style and to a superb Method-style performance from the lead actor.' Geoffrey MacNabb, The Independent
'Despite all the crummy ones, there's always the chance you'll stumble across one like this - a movie so powerful, so beautifully done on just about every level, that it's instantly etched in your memory. And your heart.' Eleanor Ringel Cater, Saporta Reporta, Atlanta
