Manchester By The Sea - No Voice Overs

by A Void In Frame

How does screenwriter and director Kenneth Longergan ensure audiences invest in his protagonist, Lee Chandler (Casey Aflleck), from the very first scenes of Manchester By The Sea? By withholding Chandler’s inner monologue, Longergan surrounds Chandler and his past in mystery, which leaves audiences wanting to know more.
