Written and Directed by Kenneth Lonergan

October 26–November 6, 2016
With three masterful films, playwright Kenneth Lonergan has established himself as a major writer-director who can capture the turbulence and drama of ordinary life in films that are filled with emotion yet also marked by artistic rigor, beautiful craftsmanship, and a strong sense of place. Manchester by the Sea, already one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films, marks an opportunity to examine his accomplishments as a filmmaker.
