Manchester by the Sea Spoiler-free Review

I heard a lot of hype about this movie, including some heart-wrenching moments, and some great performances. So obviously I had to check it out.

Manchester by the Sea is likely to make you feel all of the feels at once.There’s some heavy scenes in this film, but overall I found it to be a slow burn; after all we’re just spending some time with a group of people who are going through some hectic things in their lives; dealing with loss and trying to just keep on keeping on.

More than this, I cannot give the film, and I’m not 100% sure where all the hype is coming from. Casey Affleck provides a very understated, realistic performance of someone dealing with this character’s set of circumstances. Lucas Hedges and Michelle Willams also bring some great performances.

Not much more to say about this one. Also, I found this interesting criticism:

Rating: 6/10
