Casey Affleck won both an Oscar and a BAFTA for his performance as Lee, a man whose simple existence working as a janitor is suddenly interrupted when the death of his brother Joe forces him to return to the home town he abandoned years before. Troubled by contact with his estranged ex-wife, played by Michelle Williams, and the news that Joe has made him guardian of his teenage son, Lee is forced to face memories of a painful past as well as new-found levels of responsibility as he re-connects with his family.
The film won three Oscars, including Best Motion Picture of the Year, and two BAFTAs at this year’s award ceremonies.
