Taking leave of his job, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for Patrick, forcing him to confront an unspeakable (and unspoken) past tragedy which caused him to separate from the local community and his wife (Williams).

The third feature by You Can Count On Me director Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea boasts masterly performances from Affleck and Williams.

 

 

 

 

Here are links to Reviews from The Guardian and the New York Times .  Going by subsequent reviews and commentaries on the film on Radio 4, the original (***) Guardian review I was going to link to seems to have missed the point, whereas the New York Times ‘gets it’ – in a very long and wordy review….

But in our ‘1984 Ministry of Truth’ world the Guardian has recanted, recently posting the enthusiastic (*****) appraisal linked above.  Post-truth or what?

 

The reviews includes links to a Trailer and more.  The ‘official’ (US – R-rated) trailer can be seen below

la-la-land-purple-landscape-600

11.00am Babes in Arms screening

Bringing a baby is not compulsory but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium during this screening! 

Intending patrons should note that the lights will not be fully dimmed during the screening and that people may need to move around.

There is now an additional ‘normal’ screening on 25th March
Director: Damien Chazelle
Stars: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Rosemarie DeWitt, J.K. Simmons

 

 

Through chance meetings in: an LA traffic jam; a restaurant; and then at a party, budding film actress Mia and jazz pianist Seb seem destined to fall in love. 

 

But can their relationship survive the strains of their burgeoning professional success?

 

 

 

With Stone and Gosling proving to be charming singers, and Hollywood providing a wonderful backdrop, Whiplash director Chazelle has crafted “a sun-drenched musical masterpiece” (The Guardian) in one of the most eagerly-awaited and awards-tipped films of the year.

 

Here are links to that effusive Review from The Guardian and an equally enthusiastic and even more wordy “how and why and what does it mean” piece from Variety.

The Guardian review includes a short, dialogue-free trailer, the Variety synopsis links to other items on the film. 

The ‘official’, all-singing-all-dancing trailer can be seen below
