I remember the beginning as the OP stated, but I cannot remember the movie. I watch too many. Just discussed it with my wife, and as a result I did more research. It was Manchester by the sea, but the fire occurred in a flashback later in the movie, not in the beginning of the movie. The main character, who was called on to take care of his nephew, was in depression because of what happened to his own family.

I wish IMDB. better know as Internet Movie Database was not sold to Amazon. Everyone use to be able to go to the message boards, but the new Fascist owners got rid of all the boards.

We had a thread about that, actually. I was attacked for questioning the act of censorship which was the main reason they threw out the message boards on IMDb. Years and years of valuable information singed overnight.

See the previous page of this thread (page 1)....the OP already replied that the movie he/she is thinking about is not Manchester by the Sea. I join other posters in lamenting that the IMDB message boards no longer exist to help us with potential answers.

I totally agree. Bezo's is an A $$ hole. I was using that site daily for discussions. Now they and Amazon are dead to me. At the very least they could have frozen and archived the discussions.
