Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams were celebrated for their remarkable roles in Kenneth Lonergan’s deeply poignant Manchester by the Sea and were feted with a tribute at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara Sunday night.
Watch the video as Affleck, Williams and Lonergan share their collective experiences during the course of the past year as they accept the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Cinema Vanguard Award.
I fully expect to see more “remarkable” performances in the near future from these talented actors!
