Join Kenneth Lonergan, the celebrated playwright, Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter, and writer/director of the new film “Manchester by the Sea,” with the film’s stars, Oscar® nominees Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. “Manchester by the Sea” is a deeply moving story of a solitary Boston janitor who reluctantly returns to his hometown to take care of his teenage nephew, and is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife and the community where he was born and raised. A deeply poignant, unexpectedly funny exploration of the power of familial love, community, sacrifice and hope, the film was the must-see movie at the 2016 Sundance, Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals.
Affleck, Williams and Lonergan are interviewed by Logan Hill.
