Written by Kenneth Lonergan, the Academy Award-winning writer of Manchester By The Sea, The Starry Messenger is a bittersweet, comic drama exploring love and hope and understanding our place in the universe.

The Story

Mark Williams is lost. An astronomer at New York City's Planetarium, he feels a closer connection to the infinite, starry sky than to his job or even to his wife, Anne. Mark doesn't believe in fate or divine intervention, but the universe has other ideas. After a chance meeting with Angela, a young single mother, Mark feels starry-eyed. But when a catastrophic event rips through their lives, Mark is forced to re-evaluate his life, his faith and his place in the universe itself.
