Manchester by the Sea ( Blu-ray )

Lee (Casey Affleck) keeps to himself as a handyman for nearby apartments, failing to contain his misanthropic ways, using drink and aggression to soothe his screaming soul. When word reaches him that Joe (Kyle Chandler), his older brother, has passed away, Lee is forced to return to Manchester, a place he once called home with ex-wife Randi (Michelle Williams) and their three kids. Tasked with organizing a funeral, Lee is overwhelmed with the details, finding his workload complicated by custody of his teen nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges), put in charge of a young man who doesnt want to uproot his life. Wrestling with memories and nervous about the future, Lee is suddenly reunited with responsibility, trying to make sense of a delicate situation as Patrick continues with his structured, mischievous life, with the pair building an askew bond along the way.
