I watched Manchester by the Sea, for the second time last night. It is on my list of best movies, ever. So subtly, it captures regular men and women, their deep feelings, and the way they grapple with them. All of the characters are believable.
Through the pace of the movie, as well as masterful use of classical music, we begin to comprehend the devastation that has crashed upon the protagonist. By the end, though he has said very little, we know him and understand his pain; we begin to see that even he has hope, that even for him there is redemption.
