Manchester By The Sea: a film review

I had a choice; this movie or La La Land. Now, because of some over active cultural snobbery I took a quick glance at the blurb for Manchester, realised it wasn’t set in the North of England but Massachusetts (so I wouldn’t need subtitles), understood it was ‘thoughtful’ and ‘made you think’ (which should be the same thing but of course isn’t) and plumped for Manchester rather than the feel-good, light up your day bit of fluff that is La La Land. 495 more words
