With Kenneth Lonergan in person 

Presented in collaboration with Esopus

Dir. Kenneth Lonergan. 2016, 135 mins. DCP. With Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges. Casey Affleck gives a career-best performance as a stoic Boston-based handyman who is called back to his Massachusetts hometown after the sudden death of his brother, who has left behind a teenage son. This loss and return summon harrowing memories. The film is a remarkable achievement combining a vivid, layered screenplay, cinematography that captures both the serene beauty and storm clouds of the New England landscape, and performances that will be etched into your memory forever. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Kenneth Lonergan, moderated by Tod Lippy, editor and executive director of Esopus.
