The Oscar buzz for this year has been mostly quiet and that’s not exactly a bad thing. Sometimes, the Oscar-nominated films clog the movie media when other very worthy titles end up slipping through the cracks.
And sometimes the Academy gets it right and nominates all of the year’s truly best films.
One film that has been gathering a lot of strong and positive buzz is Kenneth Lonergan‘s Manchester by the Sea, which apparently features one heck of a performance by Casey Affleck.
I’ll admit that the trailer works for me, but there’s nothing that is screaming “THIS IS THE BEST” or anything.
It’s rather early for Oscar buzz though and this one isn’t looking half bad, so why not?
Manchester by the Sea opens in November.
