The Fire Last Time: Lonergan’s Austere Portrait of Razed Emotions in Chilly New England

Kenneth Lonergan musters yet another masterful portrait of pervasive trauma with his third feature, Manchester by the Sea, a muted New England melodrama which feels like a brotherly companion piece to the director’s feature debut sixteen years prior, You Can Count on Me (2000). Considering the dramatic development of his sophomore feature, the superb Margaret (which filmed in 2005, and after several publicized edits, at last received a release in 2011), we should be thankful his latest hasn’t been subjected to similar agitation. Commanded by a profound, melancholy performance from Casey Affleck, this latest is a subdued, languorous drama exploring the troubled future of a Boston family when a recent death in the family causes floundering skeletons to surface. Though this isn’t nearly as emotionally thorough or ambitiously monumental as either of the auteur’s first two titles, »

'Manchester by the Sea': The Story Behind Sundance 2016's Best Movie

1 February 2016 6:48 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If you've seen writer-director Kenneth Lonergan's work before — the handful of films and half-dozen one-acts and plays he's penned to date — you understand why he's racked up numerous theater awards, Oscar nods and a Pulitzer nomination. And if you're lucky enough to meet Lonergan, you'll understand where that singular voice comes from. Sitting in a crowded Sundance Film Festival lodge off of Main Street, the shaggy, bespectacled 53-year-old director of You Can Count on Me and Margaret acts like a Kenneth Lonergan character.acts like a Kenneth Lonergan character. »

Oscars 2017: Sundance Launches Strong Contenders Like ‘Birth of a Nation,’ ‘Weiner’

31 January 2016 9:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may seem nuts to start handicapping next year’s Oscars race before this year’s ceremony has even aired, but Sundance has proven that it’s now a launching pad for awards season contenders.

After January 2014’s debut of “Boyhood” and January 2015’s premiere of “Brooklyn” (both at the Eccles Theater), Sundance may have doubled up and unveiled two best picture nominees in 2016. Those would be “Manchester By the Sea” and “The Birth of a Nation.”

Let’s start with the second title. Nate Parker’s retelling of the 1831 slave revolt led by Nat Turner is a one-man tour-de-force: starring Parker, directed by Parker, produced by Parker and written by the actor best known until now as the star of “Beyond the Lights.” “The Birth of a Nation” will change that. Not only did the historical epic receive the most prolonged standing ovation at this year’s Sundance, it »

Sundance: 19 Biggest Breakthrough Performances

30 January 2016 12:12 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sundance has always served as a springboard to launch the careers of under-the-radar actors — just ask Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”), Carey Mulligan (“An Education”), Paul Dano (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and Ryan Gosling (“The Believer”) — and the 2016 edition of the festival was no exception. Variety’s critics Justin Chang, Guy Lodge and Geoff Berkshire and film reporters Ramin Setoodeh and Brent Lang weighed in on their favorite breakthrough performances at this year’s Sundance.

(1) Narges Rashidi, “Under the Shadow”

Babak Anvari’s wartime creeptacular has already drawn well-deserved comparisons to another Sundance-premiered horror hit, “The Babadook,” and along similar lines, Rashidi’s intense yet fine-grained work here deserves to be spoken of in the same lofty tones as Essie Davis’. As a fiercely intelligent, progressive-minded Iranian woman infuriated by the direction of her country since the Islamic Revolution, Rashidi plays her character like a musical instrument going slowly out of »

Scott Reviews Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea [Sundance 2016]

27 January 2016 1:17 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

A note for readers – although I will attempt not to reveal crucial plot details that don’t fall under the general umbrella of the film’s premise (and which will certainly be incorporated into future trailers and the like), everyone has their own definitions of these things, so consider this fair warning.

All three of Kenneth Lonergan’s films deal with how people cope after tragedies. In You Can Count on Me, it was the past – two siblings who lost their parents in a car accident at a young age develop different ways of surviving that. In Margaret, the present; a teenager witnesses a horrific bus accident that leaves a woman dead in her arms. Manchester by the Sea folds a tragedy of the past into one of the present.

Review: Casey Affleck's amazing work anchors fest best 'Manchester By The Sea'

27 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Grief is a terrible animal, red of claw and tooth, and once it gets hold of you, there is no way of knowing what it will do to you. Over the last year, I've watched a dear friend of mine struggle with back to back losses of two of the most important people in her life, and at times, I've genuinely worried that it would be too much for her to take. This is a strong, vibrant person, and grief landed on her in a way that very nearly crushed all of that joy and vitality right out of her. I've had my own bouts with profound sorrow over the last year as a result of the end of my marriage, and while I feel like I've reached the other side of all of that, I remain shaken by just how damaged I was by things. For the first time in my adult life, »

Now and Then: Sundance’s Biggest Breakouts

27 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Park City may be icy cold, but the film acquisitions are piping hot at this year Sundance Film Festival. Fox Searchlight secured world rights to “The Birth of a Nation” in a record-breaking deal totaling $17.5 million. Actor-writer Nate Parker’s (“Beyond the Lights”) directorial debut is one of the festival’s most acclaimed films to play the fest this year. This purchase rivals the $10.5 million paid out for “Little Miss Sunshine” in 2006 and the $10 million sum for “Hamlet 2” in 2008. Parker portrays former slave Nat Turner, who led one of the biggest slave rebellions in United States history. The film also stars Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Jackie Earle Haley, Penelope Ann Miller, and Gabrielle Union. Kenneth Lonergan’s third feature, “Manchester by the Sea,” also lit Park City up this week. Amazon acquired the drama for $10 million. The pic stars Casey Affleck as a man who returns to his »

Sundance: Amazon strikes $10m deal for 'Manchester By The Sea'

24 January 2016 11:44 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Update: Amazon Studios bid $10m for Kenneth Lonergan’s drama. Separately, A24/DirecTV picked up Morris From America.

Kenneth Lonergan’s triumphant return to Park City after his 2000 grand jury prizewinner You Can Count On Me just got better as Amazon Studios bid $10m for North American rights to Manchester By The Sea.

Amazon Studios was in exclusive negotiations with Wme Global on Sunday in a move that demonstrates the ability of the digital giants to pay far more than traditional players might be prepared to spend.

If international sales agent Sierra/Affinity concludes a deal with a studio for all rights outside North America as many expect it will, the deal would contribute to the biggest worldwide sale for a film at Sundance. Studiocanal holds UK rights.

Amazon Studios will partner with a North American distributor on a theatrical release that head of marketing and distribution Bob Berney will oversee.

24 January 2016 11:33 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"The persistence of grief and the hope of redemption are themes as timeless as dramaturgy itself," begins Variety's Justin Chang, "but rarely do they summon forth the kind of extraordinary swirl of love, anger, tenderness and brittle humor that is Manchester by the Sea, Kenneth Lonergan’s beautifully textured, richly enveloping drama about how a death in the family forces a small-town New Englander to confront a past tragedy anew." We're gathering reviews of Lonergan’s followup to You Can Count on Me and Margaret starring Casey Affleck, Michele Williams, Kyle Chandler, Lucas Hedges, C.J. Wilson, Heather Burns, Tate Donovan, Josh Hamilton, Anna Baryshnikov, Matthew Broderick and Gretchen Mol. » - David Hudson »

[Sundance Review] Manchester By the Sea

24 January 2016 8:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With his unassuming, quietly affecting films leaving such a distinctly indelible impact long after the credits roll, we may only have three films from Kenneth Lonergan across sixteen years, but they provide a lifetime’s worth of human experience. His latest, Manchester By the Sea, finds him in the quaint northeastern Massachusetts town as he immaculately constructs a layered, non-linear exploration of the ripple effects of loss and grief.

Appearing in nearly every scene of the drama is Casey Affleck as Lee Chandler, living out his lonely life in Boston working as a handyman for a group of four apartment buildings. A phone call from his hometown informs him that his brother Joe’s (Kyle Chandler) long-diagnosed congestive heart failure finally caught up with him. Passing away before Lee makes it home, he must now deal with the aftermath of his brother’s death and the ocean of grief that it brings, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Manchester by the Sea’

23 January 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The persistence of grief and the hope of redemption are themes as timeless as dramaturgy itself, but rarely do they summon forth the kind of extraordinary swirl of love, anger, tenderness and brittle humor that is “Manchester by the Sea,” Kenneth Lonergan’s beautifully textured, richly enveloping drama about how a death in the family forces a small-town New Englander to confront a past tragedy anew. That rather diagrammatic description does little justice to Lonergan’s ever-incisive ear for the rhythms of human conversation, as he orchestrates an unruly suite of alternately sympathetic and hectoring voices — all of which stand in furious contrast to Casey Affleck’s bone-deep performance as a man whom loss has all but petrified into silence. Giving flesh and blood to the idea that life goes on even when it no longer seems worth living, “Manchester” may be too sprawling a vision for all arthouse tastes, »
