MANCHESTER BY THE SEA LEADS VANCOUVER FILM CRITICS CIRCLE NODS


Half way through December, it's somewhat remarkable that this hasn't happened yet - Manchester by the Sea leads the slate with a critics group at last! It certainly helps that the Vancouver Film Critics Circle doesn't vote on tech categories, where films like La La Land and Arrival have often dominated. We await award winners in the international races on the 20th of December and in the domestic races on the 9th of January.
