Manchester by the Sea (2016)
If ever there was a ‘show stealing’ Michelle Williams performance it would be this one (not discounting her Oscar-winning co-star). When Lee Chandler (Affleck) is forced to move back to his home town of Manchester after the unexpected death of his brother to take guardianship of his nephew (Lucas Hedges), he is faced with painful memories from the life he once led. Coming face to face with his estranged ex-wife (Williams) and his gloomy past, he must find a way to cope for the sake of his grieving nephew. A film that has garnered staggering critical acclaim and earned a host of Academy and BAFTA awards, Michelle Williams once again proves herself as an actress comfortable in a film of the calibre; displaying her versatility and range, and cementing her position as one of the best actresses in Hollywood right now.
Manchester by the Sea is available on digital download from May 8th and on DVD and Blu-ray from May 15th, courtesy of STUDIOCANAL
