Manchester by the Sea is Kenneth Lonergan’s third film, and his strongest result yet. The story centers on Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck), a custodian in Boston who learns of his brother’s death and goes home to the fishing village of Manchester by the Sea to settle his brother’s affairs, including the status of his now-orphaned nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges Full Story
