“Manchester facing the sea” @ Multicines Eivissa
Thursday, December 21, at 8:30 p.m. and at 10:30 p.m. VOSE
“Manchester facing the sea” is a story about a man who must face a tragic past (Cassey Affleck who has taken all the awards), has been labeled a bleak drama about guilt and loss, a film of incomparable beauty, of poetic and painful radiography, or of funny and profoundly melancholic story, with tints of Greek tragedy. In what almost everyone agrees is to ponder this splendid script, the work of director Kenneth Lonergan. A multi-award-winning film, which was nominated for six Oscars, taking the Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor for Affleck.
