In Quincy, the quiet and ruthless janitor and handyman Lee Chandler is summoned by George (a family friend) to come home to Manchester By The Sea when Lee's older brother Joe is again in hospital after another heart attack. Arriving just after Joe dies, Lee makes arrangements for the funeral with George then seeks to inform his sixteen-year-old nephew Patrick, who's at the hockey practice. They go to the morgue and then head to Joe's lawyer to learn his will. To Lee's surprised, Joe has named him to be Patrick's guardian. Lee is reluctant, neither wanting to stay in Manchester nor deliver his nephew to his alcoholic mother Elise, and decides to bring Patrick with him to Quincy. Patrick, however, does not want to leave his life in the town. While planning Joe's burial and funeral, Lee is haunted by his past in Manchester, where he happily lived with his wife Randi and their three children until the night of a tragedy with his family.

This is a movie that will resonate with you. It's a moving and sensitive story about a family torn apart by tragedy. I had never heard of this movie before, but I was so moved by it. It's a rare treat for a movie that I've never heard of and I'm glad that I watched it. It's very hard to watch a movie like this and feel the emotion it evokes. It is a must see.

The story of a young man growing up in an orphanage is quite unique and heart wrenching. There is an emotional honesty to the movie. The characters are like real people. The actors are very natural and authentic. This is a movie about growing up and dealing with trauma, about love, and about life.

I saw this movie in a crowded theater, and it was a lot of fun. It's the first time I've been to a movie theater with so many people, and it was a great experience. I think it's a great story about a family who's struggling with the loss of their son and the weight of his life. It was a great movie, and I really think people will enjoy it. I give it an 8 out of 10.

This is a film that takes place in a small Texas town called "Denton". I am very familiar with this small town and I love the way this film was shot. The characters are interesting and the relationships between them are true. It is a very realistic portrayal of the small town. The scenery was amazing and the story was very moving. I felt so connected to the characters and felt very sorry for them. I loved how it was filmed. The cinematography was beautiful. The score was beautiful. The film is so good that it should be considered a classic.

I'm not a huge fan of the musical genre but this film really struck me. A real journey of a person's life, the choice of one life or another, how one looks at their life, what one chooses to do, what they think about the people they know, and what they do with it all. I loved the way it showed the life of a young man and the way it was told through the eyes of the narrator. The cinematography is amazing. The cinematography is a masterpiece. I highly recommend this film.

Hands down, one of the best movies I have ever seen. It's heartbreaking, painful and sweet. It will touch your heart. This movie is a story of a mother and her son who are the only real family in the world. It is so honest and real. I felt like I was there, watching it. I don't know how to explain how much I loved this movie. It is one of the most honest movies I have ever seen. I have watched it about three times in the past few months. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel sad and feel love.

I will say that this film was very very good. This film is based on a true story and it is very interesting. The movie was a roller coaster of emotions. I liked the acting of Tom Hanks and Emily Blunt and the story itself was very interesting. This movie was very much a roller coaster of emotions. I thought it was very exciting and thrilling. This is a very good movie.

I don't normally like this kind of movie. I'm not a fan of the genre and the story is often predictable. I also don't like the actors that much. But I did like this movie. It was the most realistic movie I've ever seen. It was the most realistic movie that I've ever seen that I didn't expect the ending. I thought it was a very good movie. I liked it very much.

I've seen a lot of good reviews for this film. Some are positive, others are negative, but the fact that a movie can be so divisive is a testament to how wonderful it is. It's not perfect, but it is an absolute masterpiece. The movie is a real challenge to watch, and it does get tough to watch. But it's such a good, emotionally charged film that it's almost impossible not to feel the pain of this young woman, and to see that this is a real person, who is in the end someone you want to help. I really recommend it.

This is a great film, so I won't give away any spoilers. This film is an ensemble cast that is truly amazing, each actor brings his/her own unique story and performance to the screen. But it's all about the actors, the real stars of the show here. I feel this is one of those films where you can't choose one actor or actress, and you just have to watch and appreciate the performance of each individual. I won't give away the ending of the film, but I will say that this is a truly unforgettable film that will remain with you long after you leave the theater. There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the most affecting films I have seen in a long time. I won't go into details about the plot, but it is truly an ensemble piece, so you will be able to relate to each character in the film, and there are many more that I don't want to give away. I truly recommend this film to anyone, and everyone I know who has seen it, have said how great the film was. You should definitely see it.

I had no idea what to expect from this film. I wasn't sure whether to expect a 'mockumentary' style film or a feature film. After watching it I think I have come to the conclusion that it was neither, because it is neither a mockumentary nor a feature film. It is just a very good movie. It is very well made, the cinematography and the editing is fantastic, the performances are very good, and the whole thing is very emotional. The director has captured the heart of this story very well, and I think the actors have really captured the characters. This is a very well made film, and I think you should watch it.

I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. It was very different from what I expected and I found myself completely engrossed in it. I found myself wanting to talk to the characters in the movie, even though I'm a guy who rarely has a conversation with women. The movie is a well-told story about loss, friendship, and love, and it was told in a way that was beautiful and full of meaning. The cinematography was great and the cinematography alone would have made this a great movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone. I would give this movie a 9/10.

I watched this movie on Netflix recently and was surprised to see it getting so much buzz. I would have given it a 10 if it was a short, but it's not. It's really that good. I'm not a huge Stephen King fan but I found this to be a very effective and humane story about a man trying to survive in a world that is not his own. I recommend it.
