Heartbreaking and incredibly poignant, "Manchester by the Sea" is a family drama that slowly reveals the reasons for a Massachusetts clan's sad dysfunction. 

On the surface, this movie written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan is the story of a man who must return home from Boston to Manchester-by-the-Sea, a small coastal community north of the city, upon the death of his brother. But there's much more beneath the surface, which unravels as he wrestles with having to care for his teenage nephew, left an orphan by his father's death. Beautifully acted by Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges, this is a film that will linger in your memory long after the credits roll.
