And so this is Christmas

If you’ve seen a trailer for Manchester by the Sea or read any reviews, you may be hesitant to see it.

Now. During the holidays.  A time of good cheer.

Because this not a feel-good classic or a comedy about a drunken holiday party gone awry. It’s a family tragedy and how one family struggles to survive.

But I would argue that this is the perfect time to see it. 

Not only will you appreciate a nuanced, Oscar-worthy performance by Casey Affleck and his supporting cast, but you will walk away feeling lucky…grateful for each day and every friend and family member in your life. Because they are a gift. 

And this movie, while tragic, is a beautiful reminder of that.
