‘Manchester by the Sea’


“The key scene is a flashback sequence about 40 minutes in. That said, there are other scenes without which the film would collapse. If Lee didn’t have a happy marriage before this happened, there’s no story. The story in its crudest terms is Lee’s been told to take care of his nephew but he can’t stay in the town. And once you take away one thing, everything else falls apart.”
