Manchester by the Sea

Manchester by the Sea ★★★½

One of the most emotionally driven films and narratives I have ever seen. There wasn’t much fluctuation in terms of the journey other than it just getting more and more sad. That’s the main stimulant to this film and it’s cathartic so therefore I think it was effective in its attention. I do feel the plot at times was pretty loose and some things were brushed over but hey maybe that was part of the effect. Emotions and memories are sometimes brushed over in the same way the character wants to forget them. It is a well made film with honest performances that are completely raw and a beautiful soundtrack that reflects the narrative perfectly, but to be honest I can’t find more of a purpose other than it being a sad film and being a close lense on how people deal with grief and how they carry on with their lives with it being a constant factor.
