Re: “Casey Affleck A Misfit Again in Manchester By The Sea

I agree with the review. There was no character arc (he shows one emotion throughout - whoa is me), nor can I sympathize with a protagonist who is unlikeable ("My life sucks so I'm going to pick a fight and beat the crap out of you for no reason.") And the ending is as exciting and rewarding as a two-by-four (The kid doesn't want to move away from his friends and his legal guardian the fight picker doesn't want to move back to his hometown, so what to do? They both stay in their respective towns and the boy lives with friends of the family. Wow, that was tough to resolve and oh such an exciting conclusion.)
