Drama written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges. Lee Chandler (Affleck) has his life turned upside down when his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) dies suddenly and leaves his son Patrick (Hedges) all alone. Though reluctant at first, Lee feels he must accept his brother's wishes and become Patrick's legal guardian. This involves Lee returning to his hometown of Manchester in Massachusetts and facing all the complications that come with it, including his estranged ex-wife Randi (Williams) and certain members of the local community. Lee grapples with his new role as a father figure to Patrick and tries to support the young man with his problems, while still contending with his own. The film was nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, winning for Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama (Affleck), as well as six BAFTAs, including Best Film, Best Director (Lonergan), Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor (Affleck) and Best Supporting Actress (Williams).
