A film by Kenneth Lonergan,
USA, 2016, 135’, original language version (with Italian subtitles)
starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler

Why following the death of his brother does Lee (Casey Affleck, winner of the Golden Globe), refuse to become the guardian of the nephew he has seen grow up? The director, who has also written with Scorsese, triggers a dramatic bomb two thirds of the way through to explain it. Not everything can be overcome: this is the harshest truth that lends this film, one of the most popular at the Festa del Cinema, an unforgettable pathos.
