Film reviews 2017 - supplementary - Manchester by the Sea
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
It is winter. The haunted exile is working as a janitor. He is called home by a death. He has to confront the past. There is guilt. There is anguish. It is beautifully photographed. It is poignant. It is brilliantly acted. He does not escape the pain. We do not know what it means. He begins to find a way forward. It is spring.
