Manchester By The Sea (15) Boston janitor Lee (Affleck) lives a life of solitude in his near-empty apartment. His daily drudgery – working, drinking, getting into fights – is disrupted by the news that his brother Joe (Chandler) has died. Reluctantly, Lee heads to his home town, Manchester By The Sea, Massachusetts, where he is shocked to discover that Joe has made him guardian of his teenage son Patrick (Lucas Hedges). There is more to be confronted, however: what happened between Lee and his ex-wife Randi (Williams), who still lives there, that has left such a gaping void in his life? One of the must-see titles of the awards season. Saturday at 5pm, Sunday at 4.30pm, Monday at 8.30pm and Tuesday at 5pm.
