Casey Affleck, in a career-defining performance, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, Lucas Hedges, Gretchen Mol, Matthew Broderick and others in the universally acclaimed film written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (the screenwriter of Analyze This and Gangs of New York).
An uncle is asked to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy’s father dies.
After the death of his older brother Joe, Lee is shocked to learn that Joe has appointed him sole guardian of his nephew Patrick. Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for Patrick, a spirited 16-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, Lee and Patrick struggle to adjust to a world without him.
