Anna Baryshnikov, the daughter of ballet legend Mikhail Baryshnikov, will make her feature film debut in Manchester-by-the-Sea, the Casey Affleck-starring drama from Kenneth Lonergan.

Also in the cast are Kyle Chandler, Lucas Hedges and Michelle Williams.

Lonergan penned the script, which centers on a ne'er-do-well plumber (Affleck) in Boston who is forced to return home to the titular town after he learns his older brother (Chandler) has passed away. There, he finds himself thrust into caring for his brother's 16-year-old son (Hedges) but finds himself crumbling due to a secret tragedy in his past.

Baryshnikov will play a girl who is involved with the 16-year-old.

Kevin J. Walsh, Chris Moore and Matt Damon, who initially was set to star, are producing along with Kimberly Steward.

For Baryshnikov, Manchester follows her recent guest appearances on HBO’s Doll & Em and NBC’s Mysteries of Laura.

She is repped by UTA and Brookside Artist Management.
