“One of the buzziest films of this year’s Sundance festival and the long-awaited return for director Kenneth Lonergan. Casey Affleck plays Lee, a taciturn handyman who has a habit of mouthing off at his clients, and a penchant for picking fights. But he also has some sort of dark secret that’s keeping the weight of the world firmly on his shoulders. To make matters worse, his older brother has an alcoholic wife and a serious heart condition. After his sudden death, Lee becomes his nephew’s legal guardian. At this point, via a series of flashbacks which edge Lonergan closer and closer to the event that turned Lee – once happily married – into a monosyllabic malcontent. When it finally does come, his pained expression seems completely justified. (Lanre Bakare)

In the presence of Kenneth Lonergan.

On October 20 with SUMMER CANNIBALS, NEUE WELT and the VIENNALE-TRAILER 2016.
