Manchester by the sea was directed by Kenneth Lonergan. The film tells a sad and dramatic story through a tragic but calm narrative. The film was released in 2016 and was nominated for the 89th Academy Awards. This is not only the success of small-cost movies, but also the success of the director’s narrative creativity of Manchester by the sea. The film uses camera language to portray characters with distinctive personalities, interprets the perspective of the bystander, describes space elements, and presents the audience a real life film, allowing the audience to truly feel the painful struggle of life from the protagonist. The director uses some elements to create a sad atmosphere in this film. In this paper, the author analyzes these elements of this film, in order to provide a new way of narration for the filmmakers in the future.
