First Trailer for Manchester by the Sea

I've actually known about Manchester by the Sea for a while. One of my friends auditioned for a role in it a couple years back. I even got to read a page of the script for it. He didn't get the role, but the movie has been on my radar ever since. I've been following it as it's gone through production the past couple years. So I've been anxious to see a trailer for this film for a while now. And I've especially wanted to see one since it's been getting such great buzz. Critics have loved this movie, and it's being looked at as one of the serious Oscar contenders. So of course I'm going to be excited to see a trailer for this film. And now we have our first trailer. 

This is a really good trailer. It gives you small taste of the story, and it's jam-packed with spotlighting the performances. Casey Affleck looks phenomenal, and may be looking at a Best Lead Actor nomination this year. Michelle Williams also looks great, and could be leading her category. And Lucas Hedge looks great as the son, so maybe he'll get some Oscar love as well. Who knows? I've said this before, but I'm a sucker for movies that take place in and around Boston, mainly because I'm from the Boston area. But this has all the makings to be one of the Academy's favorites this year. I could definitely see it doing a full sweep, at least with nominations if not wins, for directing, writing, acting, cinematography, and so on. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Right now, I just can't wait to see this film.
