We’ve got our hands on the first official pictures of Manchester by the Sea, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Kenneth Logan and starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, and Kyle Chandler:
“After his older brother passes away, Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is forced to return home to care for his 16-year-old nephew. There he is compelled to deal with a tragic past that separated him from his family and the community where he was born and raised.”
Casey Affleck is quite talented actor and am curious to see the film.
By the way if like me you don’t know where is Manchester-By-the-Sea, well, it’s a small coastal town in Essex County, Massachusetts (At the 2010 census, the town population was 5,136).
The film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival but has yet to get an official release date.
