A su­perbly writ­ten and acted Amer­i­can drama about grief. Lee (Casey Af­fleck, a Best Ac­tor Os­car win­ner for this) is a handy­man by trade, and a loner by choice. Some­thing sad has hap­pened to Lee in the past. Some­thing that has widened and height­ened his soli­tary na­ture. Now his older brother has died and Lee must re­luc­tantly be­gin the process of set­tling his sib­ling’s af­fairs. There is just one item that can­not be scratched off Lee’s to-do list: the im­me­di­ate wel­fare of his teenage nephew Pa­trick (Lu­cas Hedges). This in­spired, funny and emo­tion­ally authen­tic pro­duc­tion ex­tracts so many per­fect mo­ments from one man’s im­per­fect mourn­ing process. Co-stars Michelle Wil­liams, Kyle Chan­dler.
