Summary

Hull Independent Cinema presents: Manchester by the Sea

Kenneth Lonergan | 2016 | USA | 15 | 137 mins

After his older brother passes away, Lee Chandler is forced to return home to care for his 16-year-old nephew. There he is compelled to deal with a tragic past that separated him from his family and the community where he was born and raised. In Manchester by the Sea, the latest film from award-winning writer and director Kenneth Lonergan, the life of a solitary Boston janitor is transformed when he returns to his hometown to take care of his teenage nephew.

The story of the Chandlers, a working-class family living in a Massachusetts fishing village for generations, Manchester by the Sea is a deeply poignant, unexpectedly funny exploration of the power of familial love, community, sacrifice and hope.

“Both one of saddest, most unflinchingly honest films ever made about death as well as a serious contender for the year’s laugh riot. But one side doesn’t cancel the other out.” Matt Prigge, Metro

Nominated for 5 Golden Globes, four Screen Actors Guild Awards, and five Independent Spirit Awards, on top of 22 prizes so far at festivals and awards from Gijon to Palm Springs.
