Manchester by the Sea


  • What’s that smell?

After the death of his older brother, a man is shocked to learn that he has been made sole guardian of his nephew. Taking leave of his job, he reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for the nephew, a spirited 15-year-old, and is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife and the community where he was born and raised. Bonded by the man who held their family together, uncle and nephew struggle to adjust to a world without him. This film arrives with a string of awards and nominations under its belt, and is expected to be a strong Oscar contender.

Comments[American sources complained about the persistent strong language, while FPB labels it as 'moderate', so I don't know if we got a tamer version, or if FPB is being more lenient here. USA rated it R == 16+. - Ed.]
