A relentless festival of heartbreak and death hits the city of Manchester, NH and it’s not for the better.
Casey Affleck takes centre stage in this traumatic drama that is sure to break hearts all over the globe.
After the passing of his brother, Afflecks character, Lee, must go back to his hometown to take charge as his nephews (Patrick) guardian. But this town is riddled with past decay, making ordinary life almost an impossibility.
Acting talent is rife in this film, with Casey Affleck instilling heartbreak into every scene and Lucas Hedges (Patrick) portraying small town teenager with ease.
The simplicity of this film is what makes it so stunning in its inauguration. There are no fancy sets, or overpriced costume production teams, instead the film flows with a kind of authenticity that has almost been made extinct in modern day cinema.
