Manchester by the Sea

Lee Chandler (Casey Afleck), a quiet and reserved janitor receives news that his brother Joe has had a heart attack. Joe dies before Lee can reach the hospital. Lee goes to Manchester-by-the-Sea to break the news to Joe’s son Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Staying in Joe’s home while arranging Joe’s funeral and looking after Patrick temporarily, he is shocked to learn that Joe has named him as Patrick’s guardian. What follows is a story of a reluctant love that develops between uncle and nephew.

The film was nominated for five Golden Globes, out of which it won one. Casey Affleck bagged the coveted statue for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama. Though the film was released in 2016, there is much pomp and flair surrounding it courtesy all the nominations so it’s definitely one you shouldn’t miss out on.

Television Shows

Altanta is an American comedy-drama TV series created by the talented and super-funny Donald Glover, who also stars in the hit series. The show follows the lives of two cousins as they navigate through the rap scene in the southern city of Atlanta in an attempt to improve the lives of their families and achieve personal glory. The show received two Golden Globe Awards, and now holds the coveted title of Best TV musical or comedy, beating out competition from successful shows such as Mozart in the Jungle, Veep and Transparent.

This hit comedy has it all: a crazy ex-girlfriend, a drop-out from Princeton University and a pipe-dream that is just out of reach, all ingredients for a good mix of laughs.

India—A million mutinies now —by V.S. Naipaul

India: A Million Mutinies Now is a work of non-fiction by the celebrated author V.S. Naipaul. This book is the third in the author’s series on India, which include An Area of Darkness and India: A wounded civilization. All three should be read to gain the most from Mr. Naipaul’s anecdotal narrative. While noting the economic growth and the ensuing emancipation of many different strands of Indian society, the author laces in his misgivings with the society around him in general. And yet the book has an optimistic hue about it and is certainly worth a read for any and all interested in one of the most interesting and dynamic societies in the modern era.
