The northern shore of Massachusetts has been a recent filming hotspot for several movies starring some pretty big Hollywood names. Even the small town of Manchester-By-The-Sea has seen its fair share of screen time. This beautiful coastal oasis inspired the 2016 drama, “Manchester By The Sea,” a haunting film about a nephew and uncle who come together following a family tragedy. The film was directed and written by Kenneth Lonergan and it won several awards including Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor. Many of the film’s scenes were shot in Manchester-By-The-Sea and other nearby towns.
