Casey Affleck  delivers a Golden Globe-winning performance in the powerful drama Manchester by the Sea, written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (Margaret).

Manchester1_optThe award-winning 2016 Sundance Film Festival Official Entry follows Affleck’s character Lee, a solitary Boston janitor who unexpectedly becomes the sole guardian of his 16-year-old nephew. Thus, he must come to terms with a past that separated him from his wife (Michelle Williams, My Week with Marilyn) and his hometown, as uncle and nephew unite for what may well be a new beginning…or an extension of a previous tragedy.
