Manchester By the Sea isn’t just a movie about grief. It’s a movie about forgiveness, too. It ends in some form of reconciliation for Lee (Casey Affleck), the broken handyman who’s lost his children, his wife and his brother within a matter of years. But for him to get there — to the place where he can, perhaps, allow himself to move on — he has to lay waste to the hearts of the only people left that love him.
