The A-List: Manchester by the Sea director Kenneth Lonergan

It’s been 16 years since filmmaker and playwright Kenneth Lonergan made his prize-winning debut at Sundance with You Can Count on Me, which he wrote and directed. The film won
the Sundance Grand Jury Prize and was an Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee for Best Screenplay.  Lonergan’s most recent film is also garnering award attention. Directed by one of the most distinctive writing talents on the American indie scene today, Manchester by the Sea fulfills that earlier promise and extends Lonergan’s artistic vision.
