Chief Chick Comments

Manchester by the Sea is a sincere, dramatic movie. Can one navigate out of the most horrific tragedy over time? Lee Chandler returns to Manchester By the Sea, his home town when his brother dies of congestive heart failure and he is surprisingly named as his nephew's guardian…well played by Lucas Hedges. This movie is profoundly sad so see it on a good day or at least earlier in the day. As you would expect, there is no fashion to speak of in this seaside Massachusetts fishing village, but the scenery is typical New England in the winter with snow and sleet and cold. The main character is so sad it is sometimes draining. The acting is fabulous and for this I give it 4 stars. I do not want to see this movie again, but am glad I saw it once. Not entertaining but well crafted. Casey Affleck is very, very good and is one of the 6 nominees for the Oscars. Also, Michelle Williams is nominated for supporting actress and the movie itself.

Rooster saw this movie awhile ago to let it soak in.
It is a very well acted movie with a sad synopsis. Worth seeing if you're in the mood.
