**The life doesn’t reflect how we want.**
First of all it was not based on any book, but you can see that book kind of effect in the storytelling. One of the best original screenplay, I won’t be surprised if it wins the Oscars for that. I actually struggled in the opening to catch the storyline. Because the past and present overlapped while sharing the presentation alternatively. But it was about the present with flashbacks popping out regularly to join the tale by comparing/revealing the earlier events. So after few occasions, I got used to it and enjoyed my rest of the watch.
I always love good drama films. But not all the drama films I have seen are the masterpiece. So despite it was received so well from all the quarters, I kept my expectations low. The initial parts were okay, but its only during the final stage I begin to like it more. Especially the Casey’s performance. I have seen him in many great films, in the big roles, but I think this one is his best, particularly from the positive perspective of the character he had played. Looks like the decade belongs to Affleck brothers. They have given great performances recently and acted in the great films that will be remembered for a long time.
This is the story of the Lee, a man who works as a janitor. One day he receives a call that his brother had passed away as he was suffering from the illness for a some time. Since his brother got divorced, all the responsibility comes under his belt, including his teenage son. Now those two struggles to join the force, but somehow manages all. Meanwhile, till the conclusion, the Lee’s life before that point were disclosed to us, like how he struggled in his own life before coming to end in the current situation.
I could be wrong, but Casey Affleck’s going to win the Oscars for his performance. Andrew Garfield is the other guy standing between his chance. I’ll be happy whoever wins between them. I like Michelle Williams, but her Oscars nominee is meaningless. What, she appeared for 10-15 minutes in the entire narration which can be tagged as a guest appearance than a full fledged role. This is a fine drama, one of the year’s best, deserved all the Oscars nod it got. Surely worth a watch and I recommend it.
Great characters movie. There is little to say about this movie that has not been told yet.
The story is simple but interesting and well told. The photography and the location of Manchester-by-the-sea is a very well chosen and the directing is very good.
And on top of everything else is its cast. A very well chosen cast that performs at a fantastic level with Casey Affleck delivering one of the most breathtaking performances of the last years. You can feel his pain with every attitude and gesture.
The encounter in the street with Michelle Williams is just astonishingly well done while the one at his brother’s room after having picked up his things from Boston is a summit on the movie.
A very good movie and a very well deserved Oscar.
See It for Affleck!
In spite of a most annoying & pretentious score, this was a very moving film–actually a mouth-gaping appreciation of Casey Affleck. He carries the film, along with the actor playing his brother, Michelle Williams, & his nephew. Some scenes early on seem to plod on, and the pivotal scene of Affleck’s past (that will forever haunt him) is reconstructed by voice-over rather than __seeing__ the evidence, which becomes a little disconcerting, considering how important it is. I was really impressed by Affleck’s character, who seemed incapable of enjoying anything in his life. His alcoholism is palpable, as well as his violence, but he plays a wholly realized character–infinitely better than he did in “Gone Baby Gone.” I hope he wins an Oscar for this role: I’ve never seen him better. And Michelle Williams is wonderful, especially in a near-conclusion confrontation with Affleck: that alone is Oscar-worthy. It’s beautifully shot in the actual Manchester-by-the-Sea, and it’s definitely worth seeing.
As Good as I’ve Seen
Sometimes we have a work of art that doesn’t have as its purpose to make us feel good. The criticism from the nay-sayers of this film talk about how depressing it is; that there is nothing happy about it. What this is is one of the most insightful portrayals of a man consumed with guilt that you will ever see. I know little about Casey Affleck, other than the obvious, but his portrayal of a man who feels the burden of inadvertently killing three of his children, is astonishing. Some say the characters are unlikable, including the son of his deceased brother. Well he is what he is. Yes he’s a teenaged womanizer full of testosterone and self, but are we to change it for people that don’t like him. That makes the issues that Affleck’s character has to reconcile after his brother names him guardian of his son. This is a slice of realism, from his having to deal with his brother’s death and all that entails (responsibility for the funeral and the legal issues). He is such damaged goods that someone needs to look after him. This is not a feel-good film. It presents us with a dysfunctional figure who is back in the town where everyone considers him a murderer. Could win the Oscar this year. If not, Affleck probably will.
