‘Manchester By The Sea’ 2016

‘Manchester By The Sea’ is one of the most moving and true depictions of men grieving that I have ever seen. As someone who has experienced the death of an immediate family member the film really struck a nerve and spoke to a truth I knew. Casey Affleck is cast in the role of his career, a note perfect performance that never over steps the mark reminding me of Heath Ledger or Brando in its naturalism and stunted emotion. It’s funny in parts, emotionally draining in others, but always true. A beautiful painting of sadness, grief and tortured masculinity reaching out for something great than what we have and can ever say. C.S Lewis once wrote that grief is the loneliness experience you can go through, no two people grieve in the same way. Words fail, interactions gloss over the immensity of thoughts and emotions, depths remain unspoken. It is such a human experience watching this film, seeing us fail so spectacularly again and again and yet redeem ourselves in a look or a turn of phrase. ‘Manchester By The Sea’ captures both our inability to overtly express our true emotions and yet subtlety shows us the tortured soul that lurks in all of us. The screenplay is a work of surgical genius, rare it is to see a film that conserves its dialogue to say so little and express so much. One of the best films of the year 10/10
