JANUARY 20 – 26
ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE - BEST PICTURE, ACTOR, SUPPORTING ACTOR & ACTRESS
Lee Chandler (Affleck) is a custodian for an apartment block. It isn’t much of a life, but it’s a life. Years ago, he agreed to take care of his brother’s son if something should happen to his brother, Joe (Chandler), never thinking something would actually happen. And then he gets a call that his brother has died, and Lee is now the sole guardian of his 16-year-old nephew, Patrick (Hedges).
Funny, touching, heartwarming, Machester by the Sea is gathering steam in the awards race. With a director coming into his own and the assembled actors at their best, it’s easy to see why.
