What a load of crap. The acting was dreadful. Give this a wide berth if possible. Story line was rubbish too. Total thumbs down for me.

A family tragedy strikes and becomes intermingled with a previous deep, tragic loss. Resolution reflects love of family and while it wasn't the happiest of endings, it was something that might have actually happened in real-life. Well acted, well written -- tears guaranteed.

I'm a bit torn about this film. I enjoyed it, but almost solely because of the authenticity of the characters. It is a very jarring experience watching something so raw. When the screen faded to black I was disappointed because I didn't feel that the ending justified the painful journey.

[9.0/10] There are some losses that you can’t come back from, that change you so fundamentally that even the most vital pulls and connections cannot bring you out of it. That is the core idea at the center of Manchester by the Sea. It is a film about grief, how we deal with it, and how its tendril More

I watched this movie based on its high score, I found the movie to be too long and maybe should have been edited down to 90 minutes or less. I usually go for exteneded versions of movies as I like to really get into the characters and don't normally like it to be over to quickly.

American dramatist Kenneth Lonergan’s third feature, after his career has been punishingly stalled by the ill-fated MARGARET (2011), made in 2005 as a much-anticipated follow-up to his sterling debut YOU CAN COUNT ON ME (2000), then embroiled in the lawsuit purgatory with the film’s producers an More
