“Masterfully told and beautifully acted” EMPIRE.

“The persistence of grief and the hope of redemption are themes as timeless as dramaturgy itself, but rarely do they summon forth the kind of extraordinary swirl of love, anger, tenderness and brittle humor that is Manchester by the Sea.”VARIETY.

“An extraordinarily wise and well-observed film about what can happen to someone when life gives them more than they can handle, and Casey Affleck’s lead performance is, simply put, the model of what great film acting should look like.”HITFIX.

“A meticulous, rich film: there’s such a depth to this story of a man living with unbearable grief, a sense of time and place and the changing of the seasons, you feel you could almost touch it. Kenneth Lonergan’s deeply moving return shows what a rare storyteller he is, measuring out his narrative beats in a world which crackles with life, guiding Casey Affleck’s magnificent performance, instantly recognisable as a career-best.”
