Manchester by the Sea Trailer

Manchester by the Sea has already been called the best movie of the 21st Century by Rolling Stone Film Critic Peter Travers. Now that The Birth of a Nation is more or less out of play, Manchester by the Sea and Billy Flynn’s Log Halftime Walk have become the Best Picture front-runners.

Jeff Wells from Hollywood Elsewhere is one of the toughest critics out there. He wrote, “[Some movies] get you in such a vulnerable place that your admiration is mixed with a kind of stunned feeling, like you’ve been hit square in the heart.”  and “Casey Affleck taps into that slightly downcast melancholy thing that [he’s] always carried around. It’s like when Gregory Peck played Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird — it’s one of those legendary perfect fits.”

The trailer was released earlier today.
