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

The first trailer for Fifty Shades Darker dropped today and… I was EXCITED to watch this! When you’ve been immersed in a film festival and you’ve been screening Films with a capital “F” for a few weeks, sometimes it all gets a little too… Filmy. Sometimes you just need some junk. Full Story

I can remember every racist thing that has ever happened to me. Vividly. Dating back to when I was about five years old, every moment where someone has made me feel lesser than or uncomfortable or out of place because of my race is catalogued in my brain.
