Lee Chandler, who works as a janitor for a property management company responsible for four residential apartment buildings in Quincy, Massachusetts, is an angry, sullen and antisocial man. His demeanor and retreat from life are primarily because of a single incident which led to him leaving his hometown of Manchester-by-the-Sea upstate - his name being infamous in the region by those that don't know him because of that incident - and the break-up of his marriage to his now ex-wife, Randi. The only time Lee ever returns to Manchester is when he receives a telephone call from his fisherman brother, Joe Chandler, who was diagnosed a few years ago with congestive heart failure. Whenever now divorced Joe ends up on an extended stay in the hospital due to his health problems, Lee returns to Manchester to take care of Joe's son, Patrick Chandler, of whom Joe has sole custody. With the latest such telephone call and Lee's subsequent trip to Manchester, Joe dies before Lee makes it to the hospital in nearby Beverly. In what Lee assumes is his temporary guardianship of now sixteen-year-old Patrick becomes legally permanent when he learns, much to his surprise, that Joe has Lee listed in his will not only as Patrick's permanent guardian, but that Lee is to be the trustee for the estate on Patrick's behalf until Patrick becomes of age, Patrick who is the sole beneficiary. Patrick, a typical teenager, is arguably closest to Lee emotionally than any other adult. Despite his father's death, Patrick is still more concerned about maintaining his life as is: hanging out with his friends, including his two girlfriends (who don't know about each other) and his band-mates, playing ice hockey, and keeping Joe's slowly-deteriorating fishing boat (which Patrick sees as his father's legacy), which is financially unfeasible to do. To Patrick, all this means Lee moving back to Manchester as opposed to Patrick moving to Quincy, where Lee only has a one room apartment as part of his job anyway. Lee is not only not equipped to be Patrick's guardian, but is not emotionally prepared to return to Manchester, the site of the "incident" and where Randi still lives, she to whom he has not spoken since their divorce. With no other real options as to a guardian for Patrick - including their close friend George who is anticipating being an empty nester soon, and Patrick's alcoholic mother Elise, whose whereabouts are unknown anyway - Lee has to decide what is best to do for Patrick, which takes into account his own emotional well-being.

I am a person who likes films with some kind of emotional depth, and in the past two years I've seen several that touched me deeply. This is one of them. The film doesn't feel like a typical Hollywood romance, it is a little more "realistic" than that. The characters are not one-dimensional and the performances are believable. The themes are universal, and the performances resonate with me. I loved the direction, and I was taken aback by the ending. I didn't expect it to end that way. This is a powerful film. It is not perfect, but it is remarkable.

I had the opportunity to see the new film 'Memento' and it is a fantastic film. The film was shot in black and white with just one color in the movie. I was really impressed with the cinematography. I am also a huge fan of the music, I really enjoyed the opening song 'Life Is Good' and found myself falling in love with it. The film was so visually stunning and I felt like I was really in the movie. The story itself is very strong and intense. I felt like I was there in the movie and had a great experience. The director has done a wonderful job with this film. I really hope that there will be a sequel, I would definitely recommend this film to anyone. I really enjoyed the movie and I can't wait to see the next film. The director has a really great sense of style. I hope he continues with his work. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone. It is a must see.

The film seems to have been made as an homage to the early films of Coppola and in a way it is, but on the other hand it is an original film and the plot is so good that it has its own unique charm. It is a very complex story, and while it is not what I would call a typical love story, it is definitely a love story. A love that develops through the many ups and downs of this man's life. The cast is amazing, and each character is given depth that is needed. Tom Hanks and Casey Affleck are fantastic as the lead characters, and the film is beautifully shot and written. This is definitely not your average film, and if you are a fan of Coppola or his films, this is definitely one you will want to see.

This film is amazing. I am an avid fan of Tom Hardy and it was great to see him in such a different role than he usually plays. And I was a little skeptical that a year after seeing this movie, I would actually recognize his voice. It's funny, it's sad, it's a movie all in all. I am a huge fan of all the actors in this movie, and I will be purchasing the soundtrack as soon as it's available. Tom Hardy has become one of my favorite actors and I can't wait to see him play other roles in the future. I can't wait to see what he will do with a very different character than the ones he played in Batman and The Dark Knight. I hope to see a lot of movies from this talented actor in the future. This is a very emotional film. I don't want to spoil anything but I think the way the story was told was great. The soundtrack was amazing as well. It is just so good to see such a great cast and director in one movie. Tom Hardy was very good. I love the scenes in which he is singing. I really enjoyed the scene in which he sings at the beach. The way he was singing the song and the way it went with the scenes in the film were great. It was very emotional. I really enjoyed this film. I would recommend it to anyone.

A tragic, heartbreaking tale of a single mom trying to stay afloat in a world where love is often at a premium. It's a real tough ride to get where you are headed, but this story's main character, played by the absolutely brilliant and underrated Winslet, makes it all worth it. A film with no scenes that are too long, she's like a rock on the floor that keeps you there. The screen is her temple and the shots she's taken are mesmerizing. She's a great actress and she's amazing in this role. She's a person you can identify with, a person you can look up to. It's a pretty sad film, but it's a compelling story and I can't imagine a better performance than this one from this amazing actress.

Taken for what it is, a heartfelt love story, it is not as dark as most other biopics of the past, nor is it as dark as those of Shakespeare, but it is also not as funny as those of Irving and others. This is a film that can be enjoyed for what it is. I can't give it 10 stars because it was a very slow, drawn out movie and some scenes were difficult to watch. However, for me, it was well worth the wait.

I don't know how to feel about this film, except that it made me think and made me think about how the world is in a state of crisis and the only way to get through the crisis is to fight the crisis. Maybe I should just say "in a way". Maybe I should just say that. But, as far as I know, this is the first film I've seen that I could say that. This is the story of a father and his son, one who is estranged from his mother, and one who is being bullied by his peers. Both are very similar in their story, but one of them was more depressing, the other more hopeful. You will see a lot of things that are scary, but in a different way. One of the things that I loved was that this was a film about a father who doesn't know if he is a good father, but he has a son that is a child prodigy, so he is a father that does know he's a good father, but he is a father who wants to take care of his son. A lot of people would hate this film because it is not good, but I think that that is not the case. I think that the main point of this film is that people need to take care of their children. Even if it is something they don't want to do, but they just have to do it. I think this is what is important in this film, and this is what makes it great.

In a similar vein to "Fences" and "How to Get Out of It" is the movie "The Lobster". In the best way possible. The story is about a man named Matthew Broderick who comes across an island full of strange animals. They're all in danger of being eaten by the native population but Broderick takes care of them and puts them to good use. The film is set in the late 1960's and this is one of those movies that was made in the same time period as "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones". It has the same high level of realism that these films had. In this case it's a small isolated island and there's not much more to it than that. There are a couple of situations that are slightly unrealistic but that's the nature of this type of movie. Overall this movie is an excellent psychological thriller. It's a great combination of character development, suspense, and intense emotional scenes that you will probably not be able to look away from. This is a movie that can be watched multiple times without getting tired of it. You'll get a lot out of this movie and it is definitely worth a watch.

I had high expectations for this movie, I had heard a lot of praise about this movie, but after seeing it, I came to realize that this movie had a very simple plot that was handled so well. I don't want to go into too much detail, because you need to see the movie to see how this movie is done. This movie is a slow paced story that requires a great deal of concentration. It is about a man who is suffering from amnesia, and the first few scenes are really interesting. I don't want to say too much about the plot, because I don't want to spoil it. I just want to say that this movie has a lot of depth, and I am so glad that the director didn't show the movie to you before you see it, because you will probably have a hard time grasping it. The plot is about an aging writer named Will. He is living in a large house, but his memories of his life are only stored in a few rooms, and he has no idea how to get them out of there. After seeing his childhood memories of his childhood friend Dave, he realizes that he has to figure out how to get his childhood memories out of his memory banks. As he is working on his story, he meets a woman named Sally. Sally is a very emotional woman, and she is the one who has to figure out how to get out of her memory banks. As I said before, I don't want to give too much of the plot away, but there is a lot to this movie. This movie is very well acted. Ryan Gosling gives a brilliant performance, and he is the reason why this movie is so good. I am not going to spoil anything about this movie, but I can tell you that the first few scenes are really interesting. If you are a big fan of Ryan Gosling, you should definitely see this movie. If you are not a big fan of Ryan Gosling, you should probably wait until it comes out on video.

This movie was perfect. Not only was the story about the real person, but the film itself was great. The characters and the scenes they are in. It really feels like you are watching this real life. It feels like the movie is real. I don't know why some people are giving this a bad rating. I really liked this movie. I really do. I thought it was one of the best movies of the year. I think I would have liked this movie more if I didn't have to go to see the Oscars. The actors did a great job. I would definitely recommend this movie. You will not be disappointed.

The movie is based on the story of two men in their twenties who arrive in New Orleans after graduating from college. One is a college dropout who has no money and is looking for a way to provide for himself and his girlfriend, the other is an English professor, both are poor and desperate to make a living. The two men are not as different as you may think, the one is a former socialite, the other is a poor bum. It's a film that takes you on a journey of change and happiness. You will see what I mean. This is not a film that tells you to be happy and to be confident, this is a film that shows you what is possible in the world and how much you can accomplish if you just try. What's amazing about this film is that it tells you a story, tells you a story that's true and can be a lesson for anyone who has ever felt down or down and out, but this is a story that can also be inspirational to anyone who's ever felt like they didn't have anything. The characters are believable, you can relate to them and even to each other. The story flows nicely and has a good pace. This is a good film for anyone to watch.

Catherine Keener has never been my favourite actress, but this role was her best ever. All the performances were top-notch, and this is one of the best movies of the year. The ending was surprising, but at the same time it was inevitable. It also gave you the feeling of having been in that time. It had a strong ending, it is not just an ending, but a whole different dimension of the story. The emotions and the emotions of the characters are really on the mark, and they have a real feeling of belonging to that era. The last scene is also very touching, and will bring you to tears. I am sad that I can't give more than 10/10, but I still recommend you to see it.

First of all, I want to say that this movie is not a realistic movie. I don't know about you but I've had some difficult moments in my life and this movie made me feel better about it. But as I said, it is a very realistic movie. When I read reviews saying that this movie was not realistic, I don't understand that. There were many very unrealistic things in this movie. I can't say that I didn't like the movie, I do. But the movie is not about realism. This is the first movie I have seen from Josh Singer. He is a great director. The movie was a little bit slow and at some point, I thought I wanted to fast forward to the next scene. I also thought that the movie was too long. I thought it was a little bit boring in some parts. But I think that the actors did a great job in their roles. The ending was really emotional and I can't imagine anyone who didn't feel sad after watching this movie. I think that this movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is very realistic and it is a story about a man who got married and had a child. He was so happy with the child and his wife. Then he found out that his wife has cancer and he had to take his own life. The movie was very touching and made me cry. I think that the acting was amazing and I think that Josh Singer did a great job. I am really happy that he is making movies and I hope he makes a lot of movies in the future. This movie was one of the best movies I have ever seen.

Great movie and that is what it's supposed to be. If you are looking for a fast moving action movie with a beautiful story that makes you feel good, this is not the movie for you. The plot is great and the acting is superb. The characters are so real and the actors portray them well. The whole movie just seems to move along at a very good pace and never gets boring. The ending is just as beautiful as the rest of the movie. The characters are complex and you care for them. The movie is just beautifully done. I really enjoyed this movie and would definitely recommend it.

What can I say about this film? It is a beautiful and poignant film that deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. While it may not have been Oscar material, the message it sends is profound and important. The story is of a father, Charles (Tom Hooper) who has lost his wife and child and is on his deathbed. He has had a relationship with his daughter, Madeleine (Emma Stone) that he has long had, but she has recently died. Charles is now at the end of his life and his final days are at a standstill. After the death of Madeleine, he decides to get on with his life. This is where the story takes an unexpected twist. The film follows the life of Charles and his daughter. The film shows that the death of Madeleine has affected his life in ways that he doesn't know about. This is something that he is still trying to come to terms with. This is a very powerful story and a beautifully told one. It is also one of the most poignant films I have seen this year. The performances are all top-notch. Emma Stone gives an amazing performance as Madeleine, which is what the film is all about. She is heartbreakingly beautiful, emotional, and funny at the same time. The chemistry between her and Tom Hooper is perfect. The relationship they have is truly something special. The film is also full of beautiful cinematography. The film uses long takes and long takes that are just right. The entire film is shot in black and white, which is an amazing choice. I don't know if I would want to see it in color, but I know that I would love it in black and white. I'm glad that they went with black and white because it helps to show the beauty of the film. The film is also a bit slow at times, but it is still a beautiful and powerful film that should be seen by everyone. 8/10

A profound film about family, true love, and redemption. It is certainly one of the most heartbreaking films I've ever seen. The performances of the entire cast are uniformly exceptional. The depth of character displayed by everyone, and especially Dustin Hoffman's character, is outstanding. In particular, he really captures the emotional turmoil that everyone experiences during a period of their lives when they are faced with an unexpected tragedy. It is a beautifully crafted film, and is definitely one of the best films of 2017. I highly recommend it. I give this film an 8 out of 10.

I was going to write something about how I loved this movie and I couldn't find anything to say about it. I mean I had no idea how much it meant to me until I had watched it, so I guess I can't say that I had any preconceived notions. I saw the movie without seeing any trailers or any information about it before. I just thought it was a movie about loss, about life and about death. I was in awe when I saw it. The cast is excellent, and it was just such a beautiful movie. I love the way the characters feel. I loved the way the cinematography was so gorgeous, and the way the characters felt and reacted. I thought the actors were excellent and they made me feel like they were my parents and I couldn't understand why I felt like that. I love how the music fit the scenes so well. I thought the movie was so well done and so heartwrenching. I can't wait for the sequel to see what the crew can do with this story and I hope it's even better.

For the majority of the movie I had to rewind to figure out how I knew so much about characters that I didn't know. But, the movie kept me on my toes. I loved how many different characters were involved in this story. Some are sympathetic and some are not. I would say, everyone should see this movie. It will help you understand the character of your own child.

What a fine movie, I enjoyed it. Beautiful cinematography. Lovely music. It was also very well acted. Great story. Great acting. The characters were very well written. And as you can tell, I love movies about lost love. I don't understand why some people are hating this movie, I was entertained by it. It was also very sad, so you can't hate on that. If you want to see a beautiful movie about lost love, I highly recommend this.

This is a movie that is very emotional, because of the love of father and daughter, and the problems in a middle class family. The story is not too easy to understand, because the father has many problems, but the daughter does not. We can see that this movie will be seen by everyone, and that the story is touching. The actors do a great job, and this is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

I saw this film at the Sundance Film Festival. It was directed by one of my favorite directors, Mike Nichols. I thought it was a great movie. I loved how the film was shot, the costumes, the music, the story, the characters, and everything. It was very touching and sad at the same time. The actors were all excellent, and the story was very unique. The movie was very different from most movies, and I thought that was a good thing. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves a movie that is different from the usual Hollywood fare.

I have to say I'm surprised by the low rating of this film, I was expecting a more serious film. It's a good film. But I think the only reason to watch this film is to see the beautiful performances of the cast, but I'm not sure if that's the reason you should watch it. I think it's a good film for people who like to see films that are more emotional and more artistic. I think that it's a good film to watch if you like the actors or if you like to see something different. I recommend this film to people who like to see films that are more emotional and more artistic.

A great movie that tells the story of a father and his son. The story is told from the perspective of the father. It is a very moving movie. The movie is very emotional and I would recommend it to anyone.

I loved this movie. I have read a few reviews that say it's boring and boring, but I don't see why. It's a very simple story, with a few twists, but it's a story about loss and the choices you have to make, and the main character has to make the right choices. It's very touching. It's about a young man who has to make the choice between his family and his dreams, and it's a beautiful movie. It's very sad, and it's a very sad movie, but it's very beautiful. I recommend it to anyone.

I am not sure what the point of this movie is, but I really liked it. It's not a movie I would normally watch, but I liked it. It was a little slow, but it was a good slow movie. The story was very good, and the actors were good. I liked the movie. I thought it was a good movie.
