Manchester by the Sea, 2016 - ★★★★½

My only real complaints were that the music often felt out of place and Michelle Williams has very little screen time. It would be great to see another film focusing on her side of the story because as one other reviewer stated containing something this intense in two hours is hard.

Unlike the grief in A Monster Calls which steadily flows towards a devastating climax here it's just ever present and unlikely to go away. It's that intensity and how Lee deals (or doesn't deal) with it that makes it feel so authentic.
