Watch full manchester by the sea 2016 movie online. 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.
Manchester by the Sea, the highly anticipated drama from writer / director Kenneth Lonergan, tells the story of a man experiencing the emotional equivalent of secondary drowning. The film is set up to be every bit as agonizing as that would suggest, but with its cathartic score and Lonergan’s habit of underplaying his most dramatic moments, what could be an excruciating journey has a disarming grace. Received with almost unanimous praise, it has been acquired by Amazon and should appear in theaters sometime this year.
Lee (Casey Affleck) is a loaf by night, janitor by day in Boston, spending his free time fighting in bars and ignoring would-be suitors. The passing of his brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) breaks Lee from the cycle, bringing him home to the town of the title, where he’s burdened with unexpected guardianship of his teenage nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Lee had escaped a past life in the town which nearly destroyed him; returning to the epicenter of his trauma has fatal potential.
